Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer recovering after teen allegedly attacked him

COLUMBIA, Ky. – Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer is recovering after allegedly being attacked by a teenager over the weekend in Kentucky, but details of the fight and what provoked it remain unclear.

 

Police said Thursday they arrested 18-year-old Kanissa’a Thompson and charged him with second-degree assault in the altercation, which occurred early Sunday at a facility called Red Barn Event Rental, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported.

The facility near Colombia, Ky., is used to host various events, from wedding receptions to class reunions. WYMT-TV reports Meyer was injured badly enough that he was treated at a local hospital and released.

 

 

The severity of the charge indicates that the victim was seriously injured, a State Police spokesman told the Herald-Leader. Meyer was awarded the Medal of Honor last year for his actions in Afghanistan. He is credited with saving 13 American and 23 Afghan soldiers’ lives in a grueling 2009 firefight.
