A drill sergeant for the U.S. Army has been charged with third-degree assault after he was seen on video shoving a young Black man and telling him he was “in the wrong neighborhood.” Jonathan Pentland, 42, is stationed at Fort Jackson in South Carolina. Protesters descended upon Pentland’s home after the video was circulated online. The local sheriff called for calm. If found guilty, Pentland faces 30 days in jail and a $500 fine.
