A Sergeant Major-select in the US Marines has been arrested in California, and is now facing two felony charges.

Temecula area law enforcement arrested Sergeant Major-select Jeremy W. King, 37, on November 17, after he allegedly committed an assault with a deadly weapon and made terroristic threats.

According to jail records, he was arrested at 10 p.m. on Voyager Road in Sage, California -about an hour drive eat of Camp Pendleton.

King is assigned to the 1st Marine Division’s Combat Engineer Battalion and was released on bail on Tuesday after he appeared in court on November 21.

The USMC recently mandated that commanders report Marines who are prohibited from owning personal firearms to the FBI, in order to prevent a tragedy like the 2017 Texas church massacre, which involved a US Airman that the USAF failed to report.

Marine officials report that the Gun Control Act prohibits possession of firearms and ammunition for any Marine who has been subject to command disciplinary proceedings or has been convicted of a domestic violence crime.

King is due to appear in court on December 7.
