The Army is removing the one-star general in charge of its largest training post following his suspension in May over charges of adultery and involvement in a physical altercation.

The Army said Brig. Gen. Bryan Roberts had been relieved of his command at Fort Jackson, S.C., due to misconduct.

The decision was made by Gen. Robert W. Cone, Commander of the Army Training and Doctrine Command in Fort Eustis, Va.

The brief Army statement issued Thursday said the misconduct included adultery and the altercation, but did not involve sexual assault or harassment.

In May, the Army said Roberts was in an altercation with another woman who was not his wife.

Roberts took command of Fort Jackson in April 2012.

He has been in the Army for about 29 years.
