Vampire Diaries sailor cleared

The Navy has dropped dismissal proceedings against a Cantonment sailor who was facing unprofessional conduct charges after being found in bed with another male.

Petty Officer Stephen Jones, stationed at the Naval Nuclear Power Training Command in Charleston, S.C., learned Friday that the Navy was rescinding his discharge orders.

Jones, a Tate High School graduate, was reportedly found asleep in a bunk in February with another male soldier. The two men, who were both clothed in boxer shorts, claimed they simply fell asleep while watching The Vampire Diaries on a computer, but their commander ruled that Jones “willfully failed to exhibit professional conduct” and discharged proceedings began.
