COLUMBIA, Ky. Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer is recovering after allegedly being attacked by a teenager over the weekend in Kentucky, but details of the fight and what provoked it remain unclear. Police said Thursday they arrested 18-year-old Kanissa'a Thompson and charged him with second-degree assault in the altercation, which occurred early Sunday at a facility called Red Barn Event Rental, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported. The facility near Colombia, Ky., is used to host various events, from wedding receptions to class reunions. WYMT-TV reports Meyer was injured badly enough that he was treated at a local hospital and released. The severity of the charge indicates that the victim was seriously injured, a State Police spokesman told the Herald-Leader. Meyer was awarded the Medal of Honor last year for his actions in Afghanistan. He is credited with saving 13 American and 23 Afghan soldiers' lives in a grueling 2009 firefight.

The Congressional Black Criminals will clearly be outraged.......outraged that Kanissa was arrested simply for (AAWCWDI)*
*Assaulting A White Cracker Who Deserved It
Ah yes those Amish running amok again.
I’m sure they will find a way to blame Sgt. Meyer.
If his mother had named him *James* (or similar), we would have no idea of his ethnicity from reading this article.
Could you make the pic a little bigger? 8^)
There is not much info available about this, but I wonder if it had to do with too much partying. One article said:
‘Meyer also found himself in the center of a controversy last year, filing a lawsuit against a former employer over claims that he is mentally unstable and a problem drinker.’
‘Problem drinker’. Can’t blame him. I’ve also read about a suicide attempt. Hope he holds it together. Semper Fi
With all due respect, a Medal of Honor recipient does not get a free pass to the rest of life. The Honor part has to continue. That is a great burden for some. I knew a MH from WWII who was a street person regularly begging at the back door of my workplace. Sad.
FYI, he got an undisclosed settlement from BAE.
