A MAN who was arrested after dousing himself with kerosene died in a fireball after he asked for a smoke while he was being questioned by police.

Hifumi Kubota, 45, was taken for questioning to a police station in the central Japanese city of Nagoya on Saturday after a woman who was living with him told police that he was acting violently.

When officers came to his house, "he poured kerosene over himself in front of police", a police spokesman said.

Mr Kubota refused to change his kerosene-soaked clothes at the police station and asked to smoke during questioning, according to the Yomiuri Shimbun and other Japanese media.

Despite no-smoking rules in the building, a police official gave him a pack of cigarettes and a lighter.


Ok, now this is just stupid. Why would the police give him a light. I'm sure they could still smell the kero. I'm at a loss for words, and anyone who knows me knows that that is a very rare event.

Maybe the cops had a bet going. Any video of this?

This man is a serious candidate for the Darwin Awards.

The police probably didnt want to do the paperwork, so let it occur.
