FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) -- Army officials say the manager of the sexual assault response program at Fort Campbell has been arrested in a domestic dispute and relieved of his post.
Lt. Col. Darin Haas turned himself in to police late Wednesday on charges of violating an order of protection and stalking. A spokesman for the post on the Tennessee-Kentucky line say Haas was immediately removed as manager of a program meant to prevent sexual harassment and assault and encourage equal opportunity.
Master Sgt. Pete Mayes said Haas and his ex-wife have orders of protection against each other.
Sgt. Chuck Gill of the Clarksville, Tenn., police said Haas' ex-wife said he repeatedly contacted her Wednesday night despite the order.
Allegations of sexual assault in the military have triggered outrage from local commanders to Capitol Hill and the Oval Office.
