Fort Jackson, SC (WLTX) - The commanding general at Fort Jackson has been suspended after claims were made of misconduct.

Gen. Robert Cone suspended Brigadier General Bryan T. Roberts Tuesday.

According to the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, the allegations involve adultery and a physical altercation. The Army says Roberts reportedly was in an altercation with another woman and not his wife.

While the investigation is ongoing, Brig. Gen. Peggy C. Combs, Commandant of the U.S. Army Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear School, at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, will serve as the interim commander.

Robert took command at Fort Jackson in April of 2012. He'd previously served in commanding roles at Fort Knox, Kentucky and Fort Hood, Texas. He had also worked at the Pentagon.
