Military Times reports -- An Army colonel who oversees training for the Defense Department's equal opportunity programs was suspended Tuesday and is under investigation.
Army Col. Morris "Reese" Turner, commandant of the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute at Patrick Air Force Base, Florida, was temporarily reassigned to other duties pending an investigation of alleged misconduct, Pentagon spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen said Monday.
A source familiar with the investigation told Military Times that Turner's alleged misconduct involves "inappropriate touching."
Turner has denied any wrongdoing.
