Air Force Sexual Battery Charge

The Defense Department is dealing with an especially embarrassing allegation of sexual assault by one of its own.

FOX News Radio's Rich Johnson reports from Washington:

The officer in charge of the US Air Force's campaign to reduce sexual assault has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault. Lieutenant Colonel Jeffrey Krusinski is accused of grabbing a woman's breasts and buttocks in the parking lot of a sports bar in Arlington, Virginia, just a couple of miles from the Pentagon.

Krusinski's been removed from his job as head of the Air Force's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office. A Pentagon spokesman says the incident will be dealt with swiftly and decisively.
