Navy Imposes Prohibition! 06/07/2016


WND TOKYO ó The U.S. Navy imposed a total ban on alcohol consumption Monday and ordered all American personnel confined to their bases for non-essential activities to thwart a string of crimes by current or former servicemembers that has provoked outrage among Japanese.

The announcement followed the arrest early Sunday of an American sailor on drunk-driving charges. A Japanese woman was hospitalized and a man was slightly injured after Okinawa police said the sailor drove the wrong way on a busy highway late Saturday, striking two other cars head on. The sailor was not injured but was arrested by Japanese police after she was found to have a blood-alcohol level six times Japanís legal limit, according to Japanís Kyodo News service.
