    Former AB Jerry Collins Arrested in Japan

    Former Hurricanes and All Blacks flanker Jerry Collins has been arrested in Japan on charges of illegally carrying a kitchen knife in a department store.
    The 32-year-old, who played for New Zealand in 48 Tests from 2001 to 2008, including the 2003 and 2007 World Cups, was arrested on Saturday in the central industrial city of Hamamatsu, police said.
    According to press reports, Collins caught a security guard's attention when he went behind a sales counter at the store.
    When approached, the New Zealander pulled out the 17-centimetre (6.7 inch) blade from his pocket and placed it on the counter.
    It is illegal to weapons with blades longer than 15 centimetres (six inches) without police permission in Japan.
    Collins, who captained a Test match against Argentina in 2006 and scored two tries in the 2007 Rugby World Cup, told police that he "kept the kitchen knife for self-defence", according to the reports.
    Collins played for Yamaha Jubilo in Japan's Top League from 2011 and left the team last month when his two-year contract expired

    Sounds like a case of a Header and OTT from the Police. Nothing in this. Although why one would carry a kitchen knife is strange.
    Definition of Insanity. Playing the same game plan over and over again expecting a different result.

        He played a year in (my) town.
        A very nice and shy guy when sober.

            Going behind a sales counter constitutes Burglary in Ireland . . . .doing so with a large knife . . . .that's hardly nothing.

              that's just plain odd, at first you think man in department store with kitchen knife sounds like a well why not - but that story is nuts
