Marine held for trying to punch policeman after chase

Date Posted: 2003-06-01

Okinawa City Police arrested a 26-year-old Marine Saturday on suspicion of interfering with a police officer on duty. According to Okinawa City Police, a police officer on patrol noticed the Marine riding a motorcycle without helmet on Gate 2 Street. The police shouted at him to stop, which he did, but as the officer approached, the Marine bolted off on foot.

The officer caught up with the Marine after about 300 meters and grabbed him. The Marine reportedly tried to punch and push the officer who managed to hold on and finally arrested the man.

The police say that the Marine smelled strongly of alcohol and was obviously too drunk to fight off the officer effectively or outrun him. The Marine was arrested and remains in the police custody.
