A major in the Japanese Air Force has been caught naked in a convenience store in Tokyo. The man had bought women's underwear and pantyhose, after leaving his clothes behind the store. According to an Air Force spokeswoman, it was meant to be a joke.
The man had papers filed against him with the police on suspicion of indecent exposure. The clerk was the only other person in the store at the time. The major, who was not named in the report, has been suspended from duty for ten days.
The Air Force said in a statement: "He thought it would be funny if he went into the store stark naked, that it would surprise people."
