A first lieutenant from Fort Hood was arrested Sunday after police said he sexually assaulted a sleeping man.

James Gilchrist Donohue, 24, has been charged with sexual assault. Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin arraigned Donohue Sunday, setting his bail at $75,000. He was not in Bell County Jail Monday night.

Donohue is a first lieutenant with the Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 3rd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division.

Killeen police responded to a call of a sexual assault in the 6400 block of Titanium Drive at 12:30 a.m. Sunday, according to a news release from Killeen Police Department.

Officers spoke with Donohue and the alleged victim and determined a sexual assault had occurred. Donohue was detained at the scene.

According to an arrest report, the alleged victim was asleep in a recliner at the time of the assault. When he awoke, he found Donohue performing a sexual act on him.

Donohue told the alleged victim he knew what he had done was wrong and that he has problems.
