And Lt. Col. Darin Haas makes three. Haas ran a program to fight sex harassment at Fort Campbell in Kentucky—until he was arrested in a domestic dispute. Haas, who turned himself in in Tennessee, faces charges of stalking and violating an order of protection, the AP reports. He's been relieved of duties at the Army post, which saw him working against harassment and sexual assault and working to promote equal opportunity, said an Army spokesman.

Haas and his ex-wife are feuding over child custody, and each has an order of protection against the other, officials said. But Haas kept trying to contact his ex-wife this week, a police rep said. "The ongoing investigation is to determine whether or not he violated the actual provisions of the order of protection that applies to him," said the rep, adding that Haas is near retirement and will be replaced immediately.
