U.S. army officials have told the Associated Press that the manager of the sexual assault response program at Fort Campbell in Kentucky has been arrested on charges of violating an order of protection and stalking.
According to officials, Lt. Col. Darin Haas has also been removed from his position as manager of a program meant to prevent sexual harassment and assault.
Haas turned himself in Wednesday after his ex-wife complained that he had repeatedly contacted her Wednesday night despite orders of protection both have taken out against each other. A Twitter account that appears to belong to Haas referred to problems with his ex-wife in a tweet on the 21st of March.
The news of Haas's arrest comes just days after an allegedly inebriated Air Force Lt. Col. Jeff Krusinski — the Chief of Sexual Assault Prevention for the whole service — was arrested under suspicion of sexual battery for an incident that occurred in Arlington May 5.
A soldier in the program at Fort Hood was arrested this week for pandering, abusive sexual contact, assault and maltreatment of subordinates.
The mission of the military's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response program is to "develop and implement innovative prevention and response programs." After the arrest of Krusinksi, the military announced it would be members of the program would be retrained, re-credentialed and rescreened.
The U.S. military has been under fire the last few years about the troubling rise of sexual assaults, and the glaring lack of disciplinary action in many of the assault cases.
