Here’s a pro tip from The Daily Caller, America: Never take a mysterious snack offered by some random cab driver in the third-largest city in Japan.
Just don’t do it—even if you are famished or the snacks look really tasty.
Some 50 women in the city of Osaka sadly failed to heed this sage advice, reports the Bangkok Post.
This week, police said the Japanese cab driver, Toshihiko Nishi, somehow enticed the four dozen or so women into his vehicle for long trips. At least once, he baited a woman with half-price fare.
Nishi, 41, then offered crackers to the passengers once they were inside his cab.
The crackers were covered with apparently pharmaceutical-grade diuretics, which are substances that promote the production of urine.
He bought the diuretics thanks to the magic of the Internet. He mashed them down into dust and mixed them with the crackers.
When the women then felt the strong urge to use the bathroom, Nishi refused to let them out to do so. Eventually, they had no choice but to urinate in the backseat of the cab.
Nishi also secretly filmed the incidents for his bizarre personal viewing later.
“I got excited by watching women trying to withstand the urge to urinate,” the driver told police, according to the Post.
When the local cops raided Nishi’s home, they reportedly found approximately 50 videos of women who had no choice but to relieve themselves inside his cab.
A woman told police about how Nishi’s incredibly weird crime affected her. She said she entered Nishi’s taxi October. He offered her a little paper cup filled with crackers. She said she accepted it.
Pretty soon, she felt a violent urge to pee but Nishi wouldn’t let her out. Instead, he conveniently offered her an absorbent sheet of some kind and asked her to use it to clean up the mess in the backseat.
Police arrested Nishi on a charge of committing a violent act.
