A US sailor has been arrested for lurking naked in a Yokohama manga cafe in the middle of the night despite a military curfew, though he protests that he “only urinated in there.”

According to Kanagawa prefectural police, 23-year-old petty officer third class Oscar Weigle, serving aboard the American nuclear carrier USS George Washington, was reported for indecent exposure in a central Yokohama manga cafe.

According to the cafe’s account, he had arrived with another 21-year-old serviceman at midnight, and the pair had each retired to individual booths.

Wiegle however disrobed in the booth and around 3:15AM started wandering the corridors of the establishment naked, and to add injury to insult relieved himself there in the corridor between booths.

After police arrested him for public indecent, he protested his (partial) innocence, saying “I did urinate in there, but I wasn’t naked!”

He also faces possible military discipline as US forces are supposedly under curfew, and there are by now some understandable doubts in Japan as to how rigorously these restrictions have been enforced. The US military for its part says the incident “is under investigation.”

    The US military should take all these sociopaths who can't function in a civilized environment and give them extended duty at Diego Garcia or some other isolated base away from humanity. That way they can rape and piss on each other.

    'The US military should take all these sociopaths who can't function in a civilized environment and give them extended duty'

    Unfortunately the biggest psychopaths are the ones in charge, so they turn the military into a criminogenic environment.

    They should have him clean the toilets of the carrier, so that he would learn to recognize such facilities better.

    Cleaning toilets in the disciplinary barracks at Ft. Leavenworth would be much better.

    These men are an embarrassment to their uniforms and all the US Navy and armed forces personnel who serve this country with honor and dignity.

    They clean the toilets no matter what, that's daily life in the wonderful Navy. Willing to bet he was drunk during the time. If he did it in the US he'd be a sex offender, even if he was fully clothed and pissed his pants.

    Let's think about this a bit. Carrier filled with 5000+ people just comes back from a deployment of 6-9 months and someone does something stupid. Imagine that, he does something stupid.

    Well, at least hes not a teacher or a cop raping multiple students, oh never mind that's a Japanese past time now, nothing wrong there.

    So, 5000+ people came back yet this specimen was the only one who managed to do something so stupid that he made it to the international news. That actually makes him all the bigger fool, you know.

    If they were cute little girls they would be stalked mercilessly throughout Japan 0.0

    Oops sorry, let's support a nation that wouldn't accept us! Us being you because I realize Japan is nice too look at, fun to visit, and it has neat products but I sure as hell wouldn't want to live there. (and they wouldn't want me to because I'm "Gaijin Amerikajin-kun")

    Oh man I must be bored...

    They way too easily offended.

    This type of behavior is hardly unique to the US Navy.

    This is actually pretty mild compared to some of the stories things I heard of happening when oil field workers return from remote drilling camps or fishermen return at the end of the season.

    Whenever you have a group of men who do not have any form of meaningful recreation for months on end esp within a highly regimented environment you get incidents like this when they finally have some time away.

    Japan even has their own flavor of it with the exploits of drunken salary men esp those in higher management positions.

    I can assure that it is normal, for less than 1% of a group of people to do something totally idiotic.

    Because some members of this wonderful planet are total fucktards.

    Well, he pissed in the shop.
    I would be angry as well if it were my shop.
    And people returning from offshore drilling or fishing don't usually piss in other people shop corridor.
    Maybe it's normal for USA citizen.

    Um I've witnessed 8 Japanese pissing out in the open in the middle of an outdoor mall in Kawasaki and Yokohama.

    A friend of mine saw a women take a shit next to a busy road.

    Instead of doing it indoors in a shop the Japanese choose to do it outside in front of everyone.

    I wish I was making this up. My wife has seen it many times too and she is Japanese.

    Yes, because pissing in a manga shop at 3 in the morning is totally the same as a natural disaster. I can see the parallels.

    To say that none of us care is a bit of an generalization. Some of us do care how we are represented around the world and admittedly we do have plenty who make the whole seem like idiots. Personally in my travels I show the highest respect to the people I meet when travelling abroad, after all I am the guest in their home so to speak. I wont make excuses for the stupid people by any means, just remember not all of us are like the few who seem to make the news.

    Get over it, nothing in the way of democracy has changed since ancient Greece.

    Its always been lies and fear-mongering, how about putting away the scanlations and reading a little history. The shit your history teachers didn't want you to read.

    I hate to say it but this seems all to common with the navy not the the US's but all Navies and seamen in general as it seems to be a cultural thing.
    When they get shore leave after being stuck on a ship for weeks or months at time the first order of business is to get piss drunk.
    Oil workers have similar issues after weeks on a drilling darrick or on some remote drilling location, they go wild once they have time off.

    It's like all the wild behavior that has been repressed for months is suddenly released.

    Ugh. Signed up to the site just to say how disgusted I am in the idiocy of these kids nowadays. When I was stationed there in 2005-2007 we had to take numerous courses on etiquette and the fact that you represent the United States. WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED?!

    At this rate they won't get their curfew lifted for a LONG time. This is truly another example of facepalm.

    Maybe it does, because it keeps the decent soldiers from chaperoning the hicks outside of bases.
