Medal of Honor Winner Meyer Injured in Altercation
By AP
COLUMBIA, KY - Kentucky State Police are investigating an alleged assault on Medal of Honor winner Dakota Meyer.
 
The Lexington Herald-Leader reported Meyer was involved in the altercation over the weekend at a venue near Columbia.
 
WYMT-TV reports Meyer was injured badly enough that he was treated at a local hospital and released.
 
Police have released little information in the case. They say they are investigating the alleged assault to see whether charges will be filed.
 
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.
