Lieutenant Colonel (LTC)
September 26, 2019
Fort Campbell, Kentucky
LTC is accused of domestic violence when his spouse filed a complaint with the local authorities alleging that LTC was preventing her from leaving, causing her vehicle to fail to start, sending her threatening text messages, and stalking her at a friend’s house. The Command issues a FLAG on LTC preventing him from getting promoted or participating in any unit functions. Command also initiates a Military Protective Order forbidding LTC from communicating with spouse and his own son. Command begins investigating LTC for criminal prosecution. Finally, Command restricts LTC to post. LTC retains Mickey Williams who begins investigating the case and discovers that spouse is battling with major depression and recently suffered a severe bout of mental stress. Attorney also files a 138 Complaint against the Command for restricting LTC to post based on nothing but an allegation. Attorney further argues that LTC is promotable, has served honorably for over twenty years, and has never been in trouble before.
CASE DISMISSED, LTC Promoted to COL, All Restrictions Lifted, No Punishment.
