DUI: Special Forces soldier Christopher Malone jailed, can’t make bond after crash

22-year-old Fort Campbell 5th Special Forces Group 2nd Battalion Soldier Christopher Ryan Malone was driving on the wrong side of Dunlop Lane Tuesday evening when he crashed into a ditch, according to officials and a witness. Malone initially told the deputy he crashed because “I have bald tires and fell asleep”. During that conversation, the deputy noticed he smelled of alcohol, which he later admitted to drinking. Several open beer cans were found in cup holders and strewn throughout the vehicle. A handgun was also located in his possession.

  1. You should clarify that he is a support soldier in 2nd Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group(Airborne), not a Special Forces soldier. A Special Forces soldier is a graduate of the Special Forces Qualification Course at Fort Bragg, NC. A Special Forces Group(Airborne) has Special Forces soldiers and support soldiers in the unit. Calling him a Special Forces soldier implies he is a Green Beret.
