Three individuals are facing charges after allegedly assaulting an Army general in Fort Rucker, Alabama- and a US Army Veteran is facing the brunt of the charges.

According to The Dothan Eagle, Harold Laverne, Maurice DeShane Houston and Michelle LaShae Jackson were arrested for their alleged roles in the assault of an Army general along with using a firearm to intimidate on May 30th, 2015.

Their court date is set for March 7th of this year.

Davis and Houston are charged with felony assault on an general that occurred when they and Jackson showed up with a holstered firearm at the general’s on-post residence, allegedly dropping by uninvited to discuss a security contract.

Davis, a US Army veteran, who had been deployed to the Middle East for at least one tour of duty.

According to First Assistant U.S. Attorney Clark Morris, the firearm was unloaded and never drawn from its holster and that while there was no physical altercation, the assault charge originates from Jackson carrying a weapon and showing up unexpectedly -and uninvited- at the residence.

The general has not been publicly identified.

Both Davis and Houston face a two-count felony indictment for assault and allowing Jackson to bring a firearm on post. Jackson only faces a federal firearms charge.

Since 1993, carrying of firearms outside of military duties has been prohibited on military installations.
