And in the latest USFK caper, police in Yongsan are investigating four US soldiers, including a 21-year-old female soldier identified as F, for allegedly assaulting a taxi driver and one of the police officers who were dispatched to the scene.
According to NoCut News, after a night of drinking, F and her posse tried to take a cab near Itaewon Station (gee, go figure?) to return to their base in Uijeongbu at 1 am Sunday. They haggled with the driver, a 40-year-old Mr. An, about the price, but when negotiations collapsed, F started cursing at An and pushed him. When a 45-year-old Mr. Kim, a fellow taxi driver, tried to break up the fight, F’s three battle buddies beat him.
Not content to stop there, the GIs capped off the evening by jostling with one of the cops dispatched to the scene.
Or so NoCut News reports.
Judging the assault to be minor, the police turned the soldiers over to USFK, and plan to handle the matter in accordance with the SOFA.
