FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) — The manager of the sexual harassment and assault response program at Fort Campbell, Ky., was arrested in a domestic dispute and relieved of his post, authorities said Thursday.
Lt. Col. Darin Haas (HAHZ') turned himself in to police in Clarksville, Tenn., late Wednesday on charges of violating an order of protection, and stalking, authorities said Thursday.
Master Sgt. Pete Mayes, a spokesman for the massive Army post on the Tennessee-Kentucky line, said Haas was immediately removed as manager of a program meant to prevent sexual harassment and assault and encourage equal opportunity.
Haas, 42, and his ex-wife have orders of protection against each other, Mayes said. The two are involved in a child custody fight, Clarksville Police Sgt. Chuck Gill said.
His ex-wife told police he repeatedly contacted her Wednesday night despite the protective order, Gill said.
Haas was held for a required 12 hours and released.
"The ongoing investigation is to determine whether or not he violated the actual provisions of the Order of Protection that applies to him," Mayes said in a news release. But based on the allegations, the release continued, Haas was removed from his post as program manager.
