    So wait even if you threaten someone you can still get charged if it can be proven?

    What if I push someone, can I get kicked out for that. Even if the person I pushed called police and did not press charges?

    What if a person was charged on two separate occasions with assault in an 18 month timeframe with two separate victims and both times the charges were dismissed? this was civilian charges. does a commander have any grounds to proceed with discharge?
