Drunk Sailors Attack Police Car in Japan

| October 31, 2019

One of the sticking points between Japan and stationed US Military personnel is the later’s conduct in the community. This is pretty much a common issue where the U.S. has a permanent presence.

Folks like those listed in the link are the reason why certain things are said during a pre-weekend safety briefs… Or to why service members are restricted to the overseas base where they could otherwise be allowed to venture into town outside the gates.

From Stars and Stripes:

The incident occurred at approximately 9 p.m. Sunday when police were called to a disturbance at an unnamed Japanese pub-style restaurant, according to the Okinawa Times. Three men — one shirtless — entered the restaurant to ask directions to a “strip bar.”

The men were loud and reportedly threw a reservation board, prompting the manager to call the police for assistance, the newspaper said. They fled when they heard sirens, according to the report.

Ishikawa Police described the men as acting “violently” at the restaurant, though no injuries were reported, a spokesman said Tuesday. It is customary in Japan for some government officials to speak on condition of anonymity.

Ruffin was found hiding in the yard of a local resident and arrested on a trespassing accusation at 9:42 p.m., the Okinawa Police statement said. Elam, Krebill and Casselman were found walking on the street in the Fuchaku area of Onna village at 11:33 p.m., according to police.

When stopped by police, the men started banging on the windows of a police car, according to Okinawa Police. Police say Elam cracked a cruiser windshield with a piece of wood.

Drunk sailors on Okinawa? Shocked I tell you… Shocked. Thought that was a job for Marines. Somebody gonna have some ‘splainin’ to do.



Actually, they’re members of Naval Special Warfare Command… sounds like someone needs to do what BGen Ayers use to tell us back in the mid 90’s as part of your welcome aboard brief:

“If you fuck up on my island, I WILL HAMMER THE DOG SHIT OUR OF YOU!!!”
(heavy Brooklyn accent to emphasize the message)

I’m sure everyone on Okinawa is really going to enjoy the next few months of “mandatory forced fun” about how to conduct themselves while on liberty.


Death by Powerpoint every Friday night for six months followed by 24hr head monitoring for the full weekend and then an all night patrol for Monday-Thursday with Friday off to do laundry etc…
Sounds like fun to me !!!


Special in this case ain’t.

Military is under a microscope on Oki until they leave, so why draw attention?

Instant assholes, just add alcohol.


The article I read yesterday said they were part of a special warfare group. I didn’t know they let morons into special warfare groups but who am I…


Alcohol. Guaranteed to lower your IQ below your shoe size and gain you that special notoriety you and your command just don’t need.

Instant Assholes, just add alcohol. Not even midnight yet? Add Lightweights to the list.

Slow Joe

That’s why I never drink anything beside Bud light.

You need to drink a whole six-pack to get drunk.

The Stranger

Life is too short to drink shitty beer.


Debate question of the day:

Is Bud light beer?


Bud Light is what comes out of the other end of your system when you drink REAL beer.

I heard that Bud Light was originally to be named “Sex in a Canoe” because it’s right next to fucking WATER!

Anyone up for a frosty cold Sam Adams or Yuengling? My treat, no trick!


Prefer Lagunitas IPA but free will do just fine!!

The Stranger

Yuengling, my good man. Preferably the Golden Pilsner, but the Lager will most definitely work, too!


Local liquor stores only began stocking Yuengling about a year ago. Haven’t bought any other brand since.

I’m always good for either one, Pud (*OOPS*, Bud) Light is for College Students!


All the above (except the Bud Light) sounds good to me.. Add anything from Dogfishhead and Stone..

Good One!

Poor Slow Joe. We always seem to pick on him (Buffer King, Police Call, etc. ect).

He is, however, still our TAH “Little Brother”.

Right, Slow Joe?



I heard that someone once sent a sample of Bud Light to a graduate school for their opinion regarding it. Unfortunately, due to a regrettable addressing error it ended up at a nearby veterinary school instead.

A few days later the sender got back this reply: “It appears your horse has a kidney infection. We reccommend 500mg doxycycline daily for 7 days.”



Bud Light should be renamed Canoe Sex…fucking close to water.

Are you speaking from experience or is that an Urban Legend?

The poor Kid is still a lightweight compared to what we drank when I was an AD Combat Engineer, I bet he wouldn’t last one round of “Shit on Your Neighbor” a gambling card game I turned into a drinking game!


Idiots, well below the normal idiot level.

Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through an overseas tour, son.

Alcohol related incidents make them more than qualified for a senior Executive position at All Points Logistics. Check their website for openings in Reston.

Were they caught stealing mailbox doors as well?

A large frothy mug of stoopid… works every time


Idjiots… couldn’t even just wander back to post after that (one dude hid in someone’s yard, the other two were still out makin’ it obvious two hours later).


Way to go Squids! Now every Marine and Airman on the island has to either be restricted to base or only allowed out in small supervised groups. Good Job, numbnuts!

The Other Whitey

All it takes is that one asshole…

It just takes one or two of “THAT GUY” to be the big Blue Falcon(s) that make everyone else not only sit through death by Powerpoint but have to endure the additional restrictions making everybody get treated like an unruly eleven year old.

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes!


The question has been asked rhetorically and in song:

What DO we do with a drunken sailor? 😀

Which reminds me of something I read on the Intertoobz:

I walked into a liquor store. The clerk said “Do you need help?”

And I answered, “Yes, but I came here instead.”


…and I say that as someone who MAY OR MAY NOT know what the inside of the drunk tank at Camp Casey looks like (it’s pink.)


A long time ago a bunch of head shrinkers decided that Pepto Bismol pink was a “soothing” color for drunks and psychotics, resulting in numerous drunk tanks and psyche units being painted that color.

A Proud Infidel®™

Not just drunk tanks, the Visitors locker room at Iowa State is all pink, including the urinals!


The color is called “Baker-Miller Pink”. What they found out in studies was that exposure to it has a calming effect over the short term… but over the long term the calming effect wore right back off again.

Really? REALLY????
Had they only been there like 3 days or something??

Jesus, after your first weekend there, you’re no longer a NOOB and you already know half the girls on BC street, or you should, if you had a decent sponsor and you alredy knew the closest ATM to Whisper Alley and then direct directions to the 19th Hole on the second floor of a shot outside Gate 2 street at kedena for the coldest beer and then best tacos for like 50 cents a piece ever. (If I remember correctly. For like $5 you could eat tacos out the ass (pun intended) and drink a few cold ones a stumble back to the dorm.


Whisper Alley! I haven’t heard that name in 28 years! I was at Schwab and heard about it from some shipmates. Never went , of course. I stuck with the USO tours…


34 years here.
Yeah, I only heard about it from the other guys in the squadron. I was, um, er, busy being a chapel usher. Yeah, that’s it.

Well were these sailors anywhere near Shuri Castle during their Thunder run?


If they hadn’t bombed our guys in 1941, they wouldn’t be bitching about our guys getting bombed on Okinawa.



Thank God people on the mainland have common sense not to do this shit. Well….sometimes, we have some dumb stuff happening too on mainland.


poop….really? Giving a police car a Hot Carl is just stoopid.


sorry…posted that in the wrong place…wasn’t replying to you C2Show
