(Scroll down for video) Police officers were traumatized after their sergeant forced them to eat fifteen donuts or burgers at a time in order to toughen them up, police in Japan said.
Now, the police sergeant has resigned after he was reprimanded for his actions.
The 40-year-old was a police sergeant in the city of Osaka.
He has been accused of ordering four younger officers to gorge on high-calorie foods, including fifteen burgers, fifteen donuts or four large cups of fried instant noodles, in one sitting. They were also forced to drink about 4 liters of coffee flavored milk.
The force feeding began when the sergeant suspected that his officers were not working as efficiently as he liked.
He blamed their lack of work on low energy, little enthusiasm and physical weakness, all because they were on a low calorie diet.
“I wanted to toughen them up,” the sergeant told investigators.
The officers were also forced to buy the food with their own money.
The officers were force fed on 10 occasions between early 2010 and late last year.
