Only in Japan Bill Murray Catches Robber

No this is not a joke. This hilarious "Only In Japan" story is true according to Super Official News: Bill Murray Catches Bank Robber In Tokyo, Accidentally.
January 28, 2013 By Jimmy Rustling Tokyo, Japan – A bank robber was apprehended today in Tokyo after stopping to talk with none other than Bill Murray. “The man robbed the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, ran out, saw Bill Murray walking on the street and stopped to talk to him. That’s when authorities were able to apprehend him,” Tokyo Police Chief Yakuza Mori told reporters.

Bill Murray who is in Tokyo promoting a new movie told reporters about the incident. “I saw this man in the street running towards me with a bag in his hand. Then he suddenly stopped when he saw me. He asked me if I was Bob Harris, the character I played in Lost in Translation. I told him, ‘sure, why not’.

Then he started telling me how much he loved me and how great he thought I was.

“I was polite, I told him that was very nice of him to say. Then kind of out of nowhere, police showed up and tackled the man,” Murray said.

With a police chief named Yakuza Mori - you'd better believe it!
