Man arrested for making 28,000 prank calls to 110
Police have arrested a Tokyo man who made 28,000 prank phone calls to emergency number 110.
According to police, Teruo Nozaki, 44, a part-time convenience store worker, made the hoax calls from his cell phone from January 2012 until June this year, NTV reported.
Police said that Nozaki sometimes called 110 up to 1,500 times a day and when someone answered, he would immediately hang up.
Nozaki was quoted by police as saying “I did it because I was irritated by the fact that I was always watched by police,” NTV reported.
