Asahi wrote that the Tokyo police arrested a Japanese man in his sixties on Monday on the charge of forcible obstruction of business, explaining that the suspect allegedly illuminated with a green laser a U.S. military cargo aircraft that was conducting a training flight near Yokota AB in February. The drill was reportedly aborted following the incident. The police are reportedly looking into his possible involvement in three similar incidents that occurred in the vicinity of the installation earlier this year.
