A Joint Base Lewis-McChord has been sentenced to nine months in jail after pleading guilty to shooting up a Rainier home on New Year’s Day following an affair.
The Olympian reported that 25-year-old Eric David Kollar pleaded guilty in June to second-degree assault with a deadly weapon and driving under the influence.
Thurston County Superior Court Judge Carol Murphy imposed Kollar’s nine-month sentence Monday.
Police say Kollar meant to target a romantic rival’s home, but instead fired eight shot from a .45-caliber Glock into a home adjacent to where the man lived. The man he was originally targeted had an affair with Kollar’s wife while Kollar was in Iraq.
Authorities say Kollar is being discharged from the military. He was most recently assigned to group support for the 1st Special Forces Group and has served at least one tour in Iraq.The Associated Press
