Marine Arrested for Hit and Run, Drunk Driving

Date Posted: 2001-04-14

A car driven by a Marine Corporal hit a taxi early Saturday on route 329 in Kin Town. The taxi driver was slightly injured and the Marine ran away from the scene into the camp.

Ishikawa Police asked the Marine, aged 26, who is stationed at Camp Hansen for a voluntary questioning during which he reportedly admitted the charges. He said he became scared because he had been drinking and he ran away from the scene. The police demanded that the U.S. Military hand over the man, but the U.S. side refused on the basis on the SOFA agreements covering criminal cases. The agreement says that the accused will stay in the U.S. custody until he is indicted for the offense by the Japanese Prosecutorsí Office.
