In Japan, a group of biker youths reported a fake crime to police and then sped off on their bikes when officers arrived so they could experience the thrill of being chased by cops.
Investigators said the youths used a public telephone to phone police at about 2:20 a.m. on Dec. 4, saying, "We were robbed of 6,500 yen."One of the youths crashed during the chase, and when apprehended he admitted to what happened saying, "I wanted to experience the thrill (of being chased by a police car)."
Eight officers in four police cars sped to the scene, arriving about 5 minutes after the call was made. As soon as they came near, the three youths sped off on their motorbikes. They fled into the grounds of an apartment block that was not accessible by car, and repeatedly sounded their horns and beckoned to police.
