OLYMPIA, Wash. – A second incident involving alcohol and violence surfaced Thursday in the background of the Army staff sergeant suspected of killing 17 Afghan villagers -- a 2008 allegation that he thrust a woman's hand to his crotch and fought with her boyfriend.

A Pierce County Sheriff's Department incident report obtained by The Associated Press quoted a woman claiming Robert Bales told her she was beautiful, then "pulled her hand to his crotch" outside a Tacoma, Wash., bowling alley. The deputy described Bales as "extremely intoxicated."

The report says Bales began punching and kicking the woman's boyfriend. When the boyfriend raised one leg to stop the kicking, Bales grabbed the leg and pushed him to the pavement, according to the incident report.

Was this incident before or after his road accident in Iraq? If after, this was a red flag, that the military ignored or missed through negligence, and should have shown he was damaged in the accident.

The MSM. Don't it make you proud?

Reporter: . . . and in the fifth grade Robert Bales was admonished for dropping a candy wrapper on the ground -- the second time that year! In class that very day Bales was told to stop talking during class and.. yes?
Member of audience: What about Nidal Hasan?
Reporter: Who?
Member of audience: Nidal Hasan. The Islamist guy who murdered twelve or thirteen soldiers at Fort Hood and wounded dozen others..
Reporter: Oh yeah. I heard about that. Islamist? You mean the U.S. Army Major guy? Work place violence or something. Combat stress I think it was.. anyway when Bales was in the sixth grade . . . .

Looks like it was before (the brain injury happened in 2010).

Either way, from what's been made public, it looks pretty damn clear to me that the guy was suffering from insanity.

.. as Mark Steyn said this morning about "headlines":

Muslims Community Concerned About Backlash From Tomorrow's Murder Of Christians
Public warned not to judge. "Not all Muslims will be the murderers," officals advise

Whatever happened to presumed innocent.

Per the article:
“Each person involved in the incident was drunk, to the point of mumbling and slurring their speech, according to the deputy’s account.”
. . .
“Records show that Bales was not charged in the 2008 incident at the Paradise Bowl.”

I read another account that said he was drinking heavily and may have been drinking before the Afghanistan incident.
