Kao, meet te no hira

I can't find any English news stories reporting this yet, so unless you can read this Japanese news story (with pictures) you're just going to have to take my word for it: a freelance clown calling himself ちょっと待ったおじさん ("Uncle Wait-a-Minute!"), who has been waging a campaign in Osaka against 世の中の悪 ("(the) evil/s in/of the world") with fliers and stickers featuring pictures of his shady-ass self, has been arrested and charged with child molestation.

Again, Japanese-only, but I found this fairly amusing page in which one baffled resident of the area has collected pictures of those fliers and stickers in an effort to figure out what's going on (obviously, this all happened before the recent arrest.)

Language note for language nerds: Uncle Wait-a-Minute's name (Chotto Matta Ojisan) is one of those peculiar "looks like past tense, but is actually imperative mood" -ta forms.
