National Guard Army officer retires after ‘motorboating’ female soldier during promotion ceremony

Capt. Billy Joe Crosby Jr.

An Army officer in the Louisiana Army National Guard has been retired after he reportedly ‘motorboated’ a female soldier during a promotion ceremony.

Retired Capt. Billy Joe Crosby Jr., a logistics officer who was overseas with the 256th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, was initially charged with abusive sexual contact and conduct unbecoming an officer during a deployment.

At the time of the incident, the guard unit was based in Jordan.

According to the Army Times, the prior-enlisted soldier -who served during Operation Just Cause in 1989- pled guilty to assault consummated by battery and conduct unbecoming.

As part of his plea deal, Crosby was allowed to retire on March 31 after serving 30 days in confinement.

Crosby’s charges came from an incident involving a junior soldier, one who Crosby said “had great tits.”

On multiple occasions, Crosby told the soldier he would “motorboat” her during a promotion ceremony, due to the placement of rank on the duty uniform.

Despite the soldier asking Crosby to skip the ceremony, Crosby ultimately “approached [the junior soldier], told her to stand up, placed the rank in front of her chest, leaned in the grab the rank with his teeth…then placed his face between [the junior soldier]’s breasts…[and] vigorously moved his head from side to side between [her] breasts while still holding the rank with his teeth.”

Crosby’s unit has reportedly had several disciplinary issues outside of the incident.
