However, the vlogger's trip to Japan was problematic for other reasons. If he were to return to the country Mr Paul could possibly face charges for at least four misdemeanors due to actions portrayed in a series of videos he produced.
Plus he’s left video evidence, on his own YouTube channel.
We haven’t seen such a dumb criminal since those idiots uploaded videos of themselves bullying a convenience store clerk and stealing cigarettes.
Taihei Ogawa, one of Japan's most decorated and well-respected former police officers, also told The Daily Beast.
It’s not an issue that you’re Japanese or a foreigner—but that you’re breaking the law. And you’re showing these lawless acts to thousands of people who follow you on YouTube, which sets a bad example.
Even if you did things as a prank, you damaged property, you bothered people, you obstructed the work of innocent people trying to make an honest living, you were rude to many and you were a pain in the ass.
If the hotel wanted to press charges, any police department would follow up on it—and you have uploaded the evidence for them.
