FORT JACKSON, S.C. (AP/WVOC) - The Army says the commanding general of Fort Jackson has been suspended during an investigation into charges of adultery.
The Army says Brigadier General Bryan Roberts allegedly had an altercation with another woman who is not his wife.
NBC News is reporting that while making up with the unidentified woman, Roberts supposedly bit her lip and she sought medical attention.
Roberts was suspended from his job by General Robert Cone, commander of Army Training and Doctrine Command, while the investigation continues.
Roberts took command of Fort Jackson in April 2012.
He has been in the Army for about 29 years and served as the director of Iraq training and advisory teams before taking the Fort Jackson post.
His suspension is the latest in a series of scandals involving senior military officers in recent months.
Brigadier General Peggy Combs will serve as interim commander at Fort Jackson during the investigation.
She is Commandant of the U.S. Army Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear School at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.
