An Army drill sergeant has been suspended for putting hands on an unruly recruit while on duty at Fort Benning, Georgia.
The NCO was filmed in what appears to be a barracks, wearing a PT uniform and getting into a row with a shaved-head recruit.
The fight reportedly began at the Fox 2-19 holdover platoon barracks, when the drill sergeant (DS) ordered the privates to clear the hallway.
In the video, the recruit calls the DS a “F***ing ho’ ni***r,” and begins to walk away when the DS suddenly takes pursuit after the recruit.
“Get back, yes,” the DS said. “I’m from the f*****g ho, you have a f***ing problem?”
The two began to shove each other until they are separated by recruits.
US Army WTF! Moments posted the incident to Twitter and it has since taken off.
“The language used and behavior portrayed in the video posted to online social media platforms are not consistent with US Army Values of treating all with dignity and respect,” said Fort Benning spokesman Ben Garrett, who told Task & Purpose that the DS was “suspended pending the outcome” of an investigation.
