We all have our own quirkiness and fetishes that only few people could understand. From people who like to eat their ice cream with corned beef to farting before beginning a meal, these are just some examples of hilarious and odd fixations one could have. But while all those seem funny, one obsession by a Japanese taxi driver will definitely gross you out and has even crossed the line into criminal behavior.
41-year old Toshihiko Nishi is nuts for female passengers peeing on the backseat of his cab’s backseat. He is so fixated with this that he supposedly began drugging his female passengers to cause them to feel the need to urinate and then he tells them to relieve themselves in his car’s backseat when they cannot hold it in anymore. Police discovered the incidents through 50 videos recovered from the vehicle, showing women wetting themselves inside the cab. The videos were taken with a security camera. Upon questioning him, Nishi admitted he would offer his passengers biscuits laced with Furosemide, also known as Lasix, which is a diuretic, while riding the taxi. When the passengers have taken enough, some would immediately feel the need to relieve theirselves. However, when asked to stop the cab for a nearby restroom, Nishi would allegedly refuse and offer the passenger an absorbent pad so she can urinate in the cab’s backseat.
Nishi told authorities that he “gets excited by watching women trying to withstand the urge to urinate.” They also discovered 120 tablets of Furosemide, which the driver admitted to crushing and mixing with the crackers he offers to the women. He was arrested after a passenger complained to the police that he refused to stop the cab when she requested to pass by a nearby restroom and forced her to relieve herself in the backseat.
