Another day another shady military sex scandal.
Via NBC reports:
Army Brigadier General Bryan T. Roberts, the Commanding General of the U.S. Army Training Center and Fort Jackson, located in Fort Jackson, S.C., is being investigated for adultery and for being involved in a physical altercation, the Army announced Tuesday. Roberts has been suspended from his duties.
The altercation allegedly involved Roberts and an unidentified woman he is now being investigated for having an affair with, a U.S. military official told NBC News. The two were apparently involved in a recent argument. While making up, Roberts allegedly bit the woman’s lip, causing her to seek medical help.
The Command and Staff page on Fort Jackson’s website showed a vacant spot under Commanding General on Tuesday evening.
While the investigation is ongoing, Brig. Gen. Peggy Combs, Commandant of the U.S. Army Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear School at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, will serve as the interim commander.
Robert took command at Fort Jackson in April of 2012. He’d previously served in commanding roles at Fort Knox, Kentucky and Fort Hood, Texas. He had also worked at the Pentagon.
Jackson is also a veteran of three tours of duty in Iraq.
Fort Jackson trains an average of 60,000 soldiers a year.
SMH. These military guys are worse than athletes when it comes to cheating and aggression!!!
This guy was pretty high up… Check him out canoodling with Morgan Freeman
There’s no way this guy can get his job back — he’s responsible for training thousands of soldiers, what kind of example is he setting?
