On Sept. 12, the Naha Police arrested on the spot a 22-year-old service member from Kadena Air Force Base on suspicion of violating the Road Traffic Act (driving under the influence of alcohol). The suspect partially denied the allegation, saying that “I drank alcohol, but I thought it had already left my system.” The person was allegedly driving on a public road in Naha’s Kumoji district at 8:23 a.m. on Sept. 12 while under the influence of alcohol at a level of more than three times the legal limit (0.15 mg/liter).
