Winnie the Pooh Assault, 2008
Let’s head to Japan for the next cartoon criminal. In August 2008, Masayuki Ishikawa, a 20-year-old do-nothing in Tokyo, ran out of clean clothes. So, he decided to go out in a Winnie the Pooh costume he just had lying around his apartment. Wait, it gets weirder. While hanging out on a Tokyo street corner with two of his friends (who were also costumed as animals), Ishikawa naturally drew some attention from passersby. A pair of pedestrians wouldn’t stop staring, so the punk Pooh ran up to them, beat them down to the pavement and stole $160 from their wallets. Ishikawa was quickly arrested and taken to jail.
