FAIRBANKS - A 22-year-old Fairbanks soldier has been charged with assaulting his wife and a commanding officer.

Bronson Patrick Bourg of the 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team at Fort Wainwright was charged Friday with assault and resisting arrest, Alaska State Troopers said.

Bourg and his wife had been drinking at a bar, and he was accused of assaulting her in their vehicle and causing her to drive off the road.

Her father and brother took the couple home, and troopers said Bourg beat and choked the woman again.

She called his military squad leader, who called troopers.

Troopers said Bourg assaulted the Army officer and the arresting officers as he was taken into custody.
