A military prosecutor reported an incident in which a U.S. sailor is accused of setting fire to his urine samples. The prosecutor said that the sailor from Virginia performed the activity to make sure that the results of the urine test cannot be used against him.
On May 1, 2017, Logistics Specialist 3rd Class Curtis Dajuan Johnson set up a fire in a building at Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia. Johnson wants to destroy the urine samples that could be used against him in an investigation, as per reports.
One of the leading news channels has reported that following the incident that took place earlier in 2017, Johnson has been charged with one specification of wrongful interference with an adverse administrative proceeding, as well as an aggravated arson charge. Prosecutors besides the above two charges also charged Johnson with a third charge as he lied to investigators about his whereabouts on the day of the blaze.
Local sources say it is still not clear that what tests were to be performed with the urine samples of the U.S. sailor. A court-martial trial date is yet to be announced by the authorities, the sources added.
The court document says that Johnson was enlisted in the Navy in 2010 and he was a native of Pennsylvania. He is assigned to Fleet Readiness Center Mid-Atlantic, as per the documents.
When news reporters tried to reach Johnson, he declined to comment to the media through his private attorney.
