So many crazy stories, so little time. We’ll take a closer look at some noteworthy items in our news roundup. Send me anything we may have missed on twitter at @BKactual.  Good stories about public nudity/drug use/insane people receive special consideration.

Deserter Bowe Bergdahl Facing Article 32:

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. soldier who slipped away from his patrol base in Afghanistan in 2009 and was held in captivity for five years, has been charged with desertion and misbehaving before the enemy, Army officials said Wednesday, setting the stage for emotionally charged court proceedings in coming months.

It is important to note here that this is kind of the equivalent of a civilian grand jury inquiry: This is a preliminary hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to warrant a full court martial. Once the article 32 is complete, the report goes to General Mark Milley, United States Army Forces Commander (FORSCOM.)  At this point, Milley can decide to take no further action, or recommend a general court martial.
