Woman Arrested For Using Mace On Bus Passenger

In Japan, it is considered rude to be talking on your cellphone while taking public transport. A 34-year-old woman was talking on her cell phone on the bus when some other passengers pointed out to her that it was impolite to be talking on the phone. She then allegedly pulled the spray out of her bag and sprayed it at the eyes and throats of three passengers.

Following the incident, the woman got off the bus and fled. The police were called and began searching for the woman. On Tuesday, police received a report from bus passengers that a woman fitting Noguchi’s description had been spotted waiting at a bus stop in Funabashi. They rushed to the scene and arrested Noguchi on suspicion of assault.

During questioning, she initially denied the charges, but later was quoted by police as saying: “Yes, I did it. Those passengers were rude too.”

I think the women overreacted and macing someone is just too overboard. I was just thinking, maybe all she needed to do was to fart in the bus before she got off. That would have been legal. LOL

    Her act is too..questionable. I don’t see how she can judge what she did was right to three passengers who simply point out an advice/ suggestion..
