PYEONGTAEK, South Korea The businessman convicted earlier this year in a South Korean court of bribing AAFES officials so his company could hold a lucrative Internet contract on military bases has been arrested in the United States on federal bribery conspiracy charges, Stars and Stripes has learned.
