Slug driver accused of hitting passenger

By Washington Post editors

The former top enlisted member of the Army is out on bond after being charged with hitting a slug passenger with his car, 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.

Charged with malcious wounding of the victim. Guy walks in front of his car, takes pic of his license tag, and he runs him over. That's not attempted murder???

Same guy back in 1997, charged by six women with sexual harassment. Gets off by jury verdict(defense trashed the victims' reputation in the court room) keeps his full military retirement.
