    A Canadian Naval ship is headed home from the world’s largest naval exercise, leaving behind questions as to what exactly led to its withdrawal.

    HMCS Whitehorse is no longer participating in this year’s RIMPAC training after a sailor’s misconduct in San Diego led to an arrest.

    It was one of three incidents by other Canadian sailors that forced the fleet's vice admiral to return to port from the international naval exercise.

    Police have not confirmed if the other incidents happened aboard HMCS Whitehorse or in the City of San Diego.

    The vice admiral has called for a review of the ship's policies and procedures.
