Air Force captain gets confinement, dismissal at RAF Mildenhall
RAF MILDENHALL, England — An Air Force captain found guilty of attacking three people at RAF Mildenhall was sentenced Tuesday to 18 months’ confinement and dismissal from the service, a public affairs official said.
Capt. Jason L. Banegas was on temporary duty to Mildenhall last may when the incident took place, the official said. He was accused of swinging his fists at one person, head-butting a second person and slamming a third person’s “head against the floor with a force likely to produce death or grievous bodily harm,” according to his charge sheet.
Banegas is assigned to the 45th Reconnaissance Squadron at Offutt Air Force Base, Neb.
