Fukuoka Prefectural Police on September 4 arrested an 18-year-old U.S. sailor based at the U.S. Navy Sasebo Base in Nagasaki Prefecture on suspicion of violating the Road Traffic Law in connection with a road accident involving his truck.

The truck was reportedly stolen. The accident occurred when the sailor sped away from a police car in pursuit.
