Slug driver accused of hitting passenger
The former top enlisted member of the Army is out on bond after being charged with hitting a slug passenger with his car, ARLnow.com reports.
Gene McKinney, who was sergeant major of the U.S. Army from 1995 through 1997, has been charged with malicious wounding after he allegedly got into an argument on Oct. 25 with one of two passengers he picked up.
The passengers told authorities that they felt McKinney was driving erratically. When they got out of the vehicle in the 1100 block of South Eads Street in Crystal City, one of the passengers tried to take a picture of McKinney's license plate. It was then, authorities say, that McKinney hit the slug passenger with his vehicle.
The passenger did not need to be taken to an area hospital, WTOP reported.
