I actually saw this video yesterday and was hoping that the woman he was with was safe...
According to the people involved in the altercation in a mall parking lot in Savannah, GA, the soldier in the video became violent because someone was waiting for his parking spot. De’Minka Spaulding, one of the women involved, said the man then accused them of blocking his car in.
“He kept throwing up the race card and being disrespectful and ‘b— that and b— this,'” she said. “So, we start arguing back and forth I didn’t know what else to do because he started taking his anger out on his wife.”
The man has been identified as a member of the 3rd Infantry Division (ID) and was dressed in full inform at the time of the altercation. At one point he even rips off his jacket and throws it into the trunk of the car.
The 3rd ID was made aware of the situation and they immediately took action. WSAV reached out to Fort Stewart Hunter Army Airfield and received this statement:
"3rd Infantry Division leadership is aware of an incident involving one of our soldiers captured on video yesterday. The soldier has been positively identified and has been detained. We are working with the appropriate civilian and military authorities to address this situation. This soldier’s behavior and actions are not condoned by the 3rd Infantry Division and are not in keeping with the values instilled in our Dogface soldiers or our Army."
