Case against Army Special Forces impostor at Fort Bragg postponed


The drunk-driving case against a man who pretended to be a Special Forces soldier at Fort Bragg for months has been postponed.

21-year-old Triston Marquell Chase was scheduled to appear in court for an arraignment on DWI and several other charges stemming from his arrest on December 12th.

Chase was given six charges: drunken driving; resisting, delaying or obstructing an officer; having an open container of alcohol in the car he was driving; unauthorized use of a motor vehicle; driving with a suspended driver’s license; and consuming alcohol and then driving while under the age of 21.

Chase lived in barracks on Fort Bragg while he masqueraded as an EOD technician for 1st Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group for several months.

Chase’s lawyer, Robert Waters, told the Fayetteville Observer that the arraignment will likely be postponed until September 7th.

It is not known if his arraignment was postponed because of pending charges in Cumberland County District Court, but he is scheduled to appear for those cases on August 22nd and 23rd.

Chase has pending charges in Cumberland County for assault on a female, failure to wear a seatbelt while driving, driving with a revoked license and making an unsafe movement.

He also has pending charges from 2014 of financial card theft, identify theft, larceny of a firearm, breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, and possession of stolen goods in Harnett County.
