Another American military man behaving badly. Aussies beware.
"Head of US marine force in Darwin stood down for drink-driving on nightclub strip"
Thanks to the tip from Freeper and the story by Jacqueline Breen courtesy ABC.
"The head of the US marine force stationed in the Top End [Darwin] has been relieved of his command for drink-driving on Darwin's nightclub strip."
"Colonel James Schnelle, 48, appeared in Darwin Local Court this morning, charged with medium-range drink-driving."
Charged and evidently relieved of command. Pending conviction? That is not clear? Nonetheless the man removed from his position.
Be ashamed. Be very ashamed. Setting a poor example for the lower ranking and younger men.
