A quote from my friend:
<m0nki> guess some yakuza got pulled over in roppongi today >BD <m0nki> As is my usual custom, at about 3:45 I headed up to Starbucks or Tully's to grab a does of caffeine to keep the synapses firing for the remainder of the workday. On my way back, as I make a left turn onto Roppongi Dori in front of Almond (on foot), the light turns red and people start walking across Roppongi Dori.... and out this black Mercedes with tinted windows decides that red lights mean "speed up" and he zips through, slowing down a little for the pede <m0nki> They scatter, he zips through, and two police officers who just happened to be there jump out in front of him. He pulls to a stop, then revs his engine and lurches a little at them to try to scare them out of his way. One of the two jumps out of the way, but the other cop (the older one) grabs his baton from his holster, and slams the butt end down on the hood.... left a NASTY dent. <m0nki> At this, the punch permed gent jumped out of the car and started screaming at the officer. Those of you who know the neighbourhood may be chuckling at this point, realising exactly where all this was taking place - about 20 metres from the Aoyama police station. <m0nki> Sure enough, Mr. Yak gets that creepy feeling that someone is standing behind him, turns around and there's like 15 cops there. As I strolled back to the office, they were going over the car with a fine toothed comb - they'd removed the passenger seat, had the contents of the trunk on the sidewalk...
ok that is hilarious
oh and congrats to the gf! That is great news
this makes my day!
