U.S. airman arrested for drunk driving

Okinawa City Police arrested 22-year-old Senior Airman on suspicion of driving under influence in Kitanakagusuku, Sunday morning.

According to police, 22-year-old SrA Christopher Hardy who’s assigned to the 18th Wing Medical Squadron was swerving on the opposite lane and causing a minor collision with a taxicab. No one was injured in the collision.

A police patrol arriving at the scene administered a breathalyzer test to Hardy that showed he had five times the legal limit of alcohol in his breath. When questioned, Hardy reportedly stated that he “didn’t think I had still alcohol left in my system from drinking the night before.”
