former SGM McKinney

NBC Washington reports:

Manassas resident Gene McKinney, 59, was arrested last week and charged with attempted malicious wounding for an incident that happened in Pentagon City on October 25.

McKinney allegedly picked up commuters from a slug line that Monday morning. He was driving north toward Washington when his passengers demanded to be let out of the car because he was driving erratically, according to arlnow.com.

McKinney let them out on the 1100 block of South Eads Street, according to the site. One man took out a camera and tried to snap a photo of McKinney’s license plate. That’s when the former top soldier hit the gas and struck the man with his car, police said.

[Update]  Military.com via Stars & Stripes is now reporting:

Arlington, Va., police have charged Gene McKinney, the Army’s former top enlisted officer, with intentionally driving his car into a fellow carpooler after that man complained about McKinney’s driving.
