A 22-year-old Japanese man pretended to be dead for around three hours in a failed attempt to avoid being arrested for rear-ending a police motorcycle.

Yuji Matsumura collapsed and feigned death while being handcuffed after police apprehended him 400 metres away from the accident after he fled the scene.

Police called an ambulance despite Mr Matsumura showing a healthy breathing and heartbeat pattern, with the young man keeping up the act, even after a catheter was inserted into his urethra by paramedics. ...He was nothing if not committed to this charade.

The catheter in the urethra would have ended the act for me...
