Stranger than Fiction: The Curious Case of Jerry Collins

The recent arrest of former All Black Jerry Collins in Japan, for violating the country’s Swords and Firearms Control Law, is a bit of a weird one.

Collins has been in police custody since an incident nearly 2 weeks ago, accused of carrying a knife in a department store in the Japanese city of Hamamatsu. He has not yet been charged.

If that’s not strange enough for you, it is reported that the former New Zealand and Barnstaple 2nd XV flanker was being chased by a gang of Brazilian workers who hate foreign rugby players and was carrying the knife as protection.

Quite why Brazilian workers in Japan hate foreign rugby players has yet to be explained.

It was also appears that it took more than 30 Japanese police officers to take Collins into custody. Not that he resisted arrest or anything, it’s just that the first officer on the scene took one look at Collins, saw how big he was and immediately called for backup!
