The Army had to retrieve Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl again — this time from an illegal northern California pot farm.
Law enforcement found the former Taliban captive on the property during a surprise raid in Mendocino County earlier this week, according to the Anderson Valley Advertiser. Authorities said he was visiting a friend and was not involved in the marijuana operation.
Bergdalh, who has been charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, is on active duty but awaiting the results of a court-martial. Those results reportedly have been in for months but are being slow-walked by the Obama administration for political reasons.
At least the soldier was on an authorized leave this time, said the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Department.
Sheriff Tom Allman said Bergdahl was “above politeness” in his dealings with law enforcement.
The Advertiser reported that at the Pentagon’s request, Bergdahl “was transported by the Sheriff’s Department to Santa Rosa, where he was met by an Army major who was to accompany Bergdahl to his duty station near Washington.”
