Police: Fort Campbell army sex assault manager threatened ex-wife

May 17th, 2013 by Associated Press in Local - Breaking News

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - A police affidavit in the stalking case of an Army officer who manages the sexual harassment and assault response program at Fort Campbell says Lt. Col. Darin Haas threatened to kill his ex-wife in text messages.

According to the affidavit, obtained by WSMV-TV, Alissa Owen told police on Wednesday that Haas had been sending threatening text messages since Nov. 2011, shortly before their divorce was finalized. Owen took out an order of protection against Haas in Oct. 2012 that is still in effect.

A Fort Campbell spokesman initially said Haas and Owen have mutual orders of protection, but the ex-wife's attorney said on Friday that this is not correct. He said there's no protection order against his client.

Haas was removed from his position on Thursday.

Clarksville Police are investigating.
