Drunk and possessing an urge to go to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, a 19-year-old man boarded a bus on Tuesday and threatened to hijack it unless the driver took him there.
Unfortunately for the youth in question, there were a few things he had failed to take into consideration. Firstly he wasn’t carrying a weapon, and secondly the bus was already on its way to the airport.
Realizing that the man posed no real threat, the bus driver quickly alerted the police and the hopeless hijacker was arrested on suspicion of forcible obstruction of business. A police spokesman calmly summed up the whole sorry affair by saying, “He just wanted to make a scene.”
Which if nothing else, he did manage to do successfully.
