2 sailors on leave arrested in Waikiki

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 04:30 a.m. HST, Apr 17, 2014

Two sailors on leave from a San Diego-based amphibious assault ship got into trouble in Waikiki early Wednesday morning.

A 33-year-old sailor was arrested just after 12:30 a.m. for allegedly trying to break into a car on Kalakaua Avenue near the Moana Hotel, according to police records.

An hour later, officers arrested another 24-year-old sailor on suspicion of third-degree assault near the Waikiki Aquarium.

Both sailors are assigned the USS Boxer, which arrived at Pearl Harbor Tuesday for brief layover.

The Boxer Amphibious Ready Group and the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit are completing a nine-month western Pacific deployment and stopped in Honolulu before returning to San Diego.

The sailors were turned over to Navy authorities.

Did the sailor at the aquarium win a scrap? because if he had been beaten into a coma there would be no arrests.

Guess the nine months deployment was too long for these sailors. The question is, will they be charged and were they released? Will the USS Boxer leave port with or without them?

Uhhh, read the story. Sailors turned over to the Navy for prosecution. Believe me the Navy will ensure they pay a heavy legal price for their failure to act like professional military members. Ship will take them on to San Diego as HPD did not take them in to custody. Navy JAG will be ready to go to work on them.

Seems like those military guys get into trouble in Waikiki all the time after having too much to drink. Incidents like these happen every other night over there.

krusha - Where did you get the idea they were drinking? Not mentioned in the report. Perhaps thinking back to your younger days.
