Recommended Posts

YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan — Local police are recommending criminal charges against a U.S. Navy sailor who allegedly charged into a group of people and injured several of them near the home of the U.S. 7th Fleet.

The male sailor, 29, whose identity has not been disclosed by either the Navy or Japanese authorities, is accused of running into five people around 8:30 p.m. July 9 in Zushi, eight miles from the naval base, a Kanagawa Prefectural Police spokesman told Stars and Stripes by phone Monday. Japanese government spokespeople are customarily required to speak to the media on condition of anonymity.
