A Minnesota National Guardsman is suing his wife and her boyfriend, who live in Iowa, accusing the pair of spending his military pay and driving him into debt while he was deployed in Iraq. Andrew Scullen and his wife, Kimberly, got married five days before he shipped out for active duty in March of 2006.
When he returned just over a year later, she served him with divorce papers. According to court documents, the 37-year-old soldier says while he was gone his bride — who lives in Swisher — used his military pay on luxuries, including trips, and made cash payments to her boyfriend.
The suit also alleges that 26-year-old Kimberly Scullen bought a car and other big ticket items in his name, but failed to make timely payments, so his credit rating’s bad now, too.
