Japanese Police Arrest Woman for Calling them 15,000 Times

Japanese police said Thursday they have arrested a woman for calling them more than 15,000 times over a six-month period.

Authorities repeatedly visited the 44-year-old and asked her to cease and desist.

When she failed to stop making the calls, which started in May, police slapped handcuffs on her.

Authorities, who have so far ruled out mental illness for the woman’s behaviour, said her calls had “no real meaning”.

The woman was charged with fraudulent obstruction of police business, which carries a maximum penalty of up to three years in prison or a fine of 500,000 yen ($4,900).
