    Incident that happened at work

    I just found out about this incident because I was TDY while it happened. It caused the base to go on lockdown. This shows that BGs can even get into secure areas.

    Man charged in SPAWAR incident

    GOOSE CREEK -- A former military defense contractor faked a police badge so he could walk into an office with a gun and demand to know why he was fired last week, according to a Navy investigator who sent him to jail.

    Naval Criminal Investigative Service Special Agent Troy Williams spelled out the story in an Aug. 13 affidavit filed in U.S. District Court.

    Harry Edgar Lewis III of Ladson was a contractor for the ICS Corporation working at the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center until he was fired.

    He showed up at the Naval Weapons Station shortly before noon Aug. 12 in a gold Hummer with MR ED Virginia license plates demanding to see SPAWAR security chief Michael Morris.

    He was wearing a leather shoulder holster with a semiautomatic pistol and extra magazines and an NCIS ball cap. He claimed to be a recently hired investigative special agent and showed credentials that appeared authentic.

    Lewis confronted Morris and said: "I want to know why I was terminated. I only fell asleep once. I want some answers." When Morris told him to get out, he said, "You haven't heard the last of me."

    Later that day, investigators questioned Lewis. He told them his stunt, which included making fake credentials, was the only way he could get answers from Morris, according to the affidavit.

    Lewis said he never intended to use the gun.

    Lewis was arrested on multiple charges, including impersonating an officer and taking a firearm onto the Naval Weapons Station.

    He was in custody at the Charleston County Detention Center on Monday.

    He should have been satisified with being fired......but nooooooo, he wanted to go to jail, too! Ok, arrangements have been made.

    If this guy had a security clearance it's now a thing of the past. What was this idiot thinking?

    Maybe he was looking for Wilber so they could go for their daily ride!
