Assistant police inspector arrested for drunk driving

(Japan) - Police in Taragi, Kumamoto Prefecture, said Monday that a 55-year-old assistant police inspector was arrested on Sunday at around 8 a.m. while driving drunk to work.

The man, who has been named as Hiroshi Sakata, was arrested after his vehicle ran into the rear of a taxi waiting at a stop light, Fuji TV reported. Sakata was asked to take a breathalyzer test, which registered 0.63 milligrams of alcohol per liter. The legal limit in Japan is 0.03 mg/ml.

During questioning, Sakata was quoted by investigators as saying that he had been drinking from midday until 9 p.m. Saturday, Fuji reported.

Kumamoto Prefectural Police released a statement in which it said that Sakata would be disciplined for his behavior and that the force would do its utmost to prevent similar incidents in the future.
