Cadet In LaBelle Guard Tussle Back At West Point

WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) - The Department of the Army has reinstated a West Point cadet who was involved in an airport scuffle with bodyguards for R&B diva Patti LaBelle.


Richard King, a member of the Class of 2011, was already on suspended separation for previous conduct when the March 11 scrape happened at an airport in his hometown of Houston. In a lawsuit against the Grammy Award-winning LaBelle, he said three of her bodyguards attacked him for no reason. The singer has counter sued, saying King was drunk and hurling racial slurs.


Norma Harris, the 63-year-old hairdresser for LaBelle, and 43-year-old bodyguard Efrem Holmes, have been charged with assault in connection with the tussle.
West Point says the 23-year-old King will start classes Monday. If he meets academic standards, he will graduate in December.
