Charges dropped against two U.S. dependents

Date Posted: 2012-06-22

Two American teenagers who last month were arrested on charges of impeding traffic by putting six bowling pins on the Okinawa Expressway will not face prosecution.

The Naha District Public Prosecutors Office says it has dropped all charges against the two 14-year-old boys who are U.S. Forces dependents. They’d been charged earlier after they put the bowling pins, each weighing about two kilograms, on the expressway.

Nobutaka Hiramitsu, an associate public prosecutor, says “the crime was a slight case in a statutory penalty, and the boys are very young.” He noted the boys have already compensated the victim whose vehicle was damaged striking the bowling pins.

The boys aren’t getting off that easy. They’ve been restricted to military bases, and have been ordered out of Japan and sent back to the United States.
