Most Monday evening papers wrote that the Okinawa police arrested a U.S. airman at Kadena AB on charges of drunk driving in Chatan on Sunday, noting that the incident occurred less than a week after the U.S. military relaxed the alcohol ban on all personnel in the island prefecture on June 28. The suspect is reportedly denying the allegation. This morning’s Yomiuri wrote that the GOJ filed a protest with the USG, quoting Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Hagiuda as telling the press yesterday that it the incident is extremely regrettable.
