JAPAN - Four people were arrested for filming an adult movie in a McDonald's restaurant.
Arrested earlier this month for indecent exposure and obstruction of business were Kunikazu Ishii, 52, the director, Nahoko Shimada, 21, an actress and dental nurse, and actors Yuya Ochiai, 29, and Makoto Nishizumi.
Saitama Prefectural Police say the four spent about 30 minutes one afternoon in January this year filming an adult movie in the McDonald's Higashi Matsuyama Itoyokado outlet in Higashi Matsuyama, Saitama Prefecture. They were caught after a customer called the police.
"(Shimada) came into the restaurant holding hands with Ochiai. But Ochiai didn't look the type good enough to pick up a woman like her, so I thought something fishy was going on," a customer said. "It was even more suspicious because there was one young woman surrounded by all those much older guys."
The group apparently took up a corner counter not easily visible to serving staff and went about their activities.
When police arrived, the group had been filming inside the restaurant for about half an hour. Each of the four suspects was led away individually.
Adult movie experts say the arrests are a sign of the times: "They probably did something that stupid because they wanted to cut production costs."
