Neither a soldier nor a lady

Not only was Corey Scott Fleck, 25, arrested while “intoxicated in the women’s restroom” of the Tacoma Dome, he was charged yesterday with trying to intimidate the police officer tasked with taking him back to headquarters.

According to charging documents: Fleck told police he was an Army ranger when he was being arrested and Tacoma officers took to the station to turn him over to the military.

Fleck reportedly told an officer identified as J. Bowen that “he was going to slit the officer’s throat” and that the officer wouldn’t look him in the eye because Fleck was too much of a “bad ass.” Also “Bowen did not want to see death coming at him.”

It turns out Fleck wasn’t a ranger, wasn’t in the Army nor any other branch of the military.

“Fleck remained threatening and menacing until the tail end of the investigation when he conceded he was not in the Army, was embarassed and wanted to go home,” the prosecutor’s affidavit reads.

He was free on $11,000 bail, according to online court records.
