 CAMP FOSTER, Okinawa — A Marine accused of throwing a glass and injuring an Okinawan bartender was released Tuesday but will likely face charges at a later date, police said.
 
Cpl. James Louis Mackey, assigned to Marine Corps Air Station Futenma, is expected to be charged with inflicting bodily injury in Sunday’s incident at a Chatan bar, said an Okinawa prefectural police spokesman. The case has been referred to the Naha District Public Prosecutor’s Office.
 
The incident happened around 10 p.m. when Mackey threw a glass at the head of the 26-year-old male employee, police said. The bartender suffered minor bruises.
 
Mackey said he did not remember what he had done because he was too drunk, said police who declined to name the bar where the incident occurred.
