Jerry D. Lane, the former USPS Vice President for the Capitol Metro Area, was found guilty on misdemeanor assault charges in Loudoun County, Virginia District Court on August 26, 2010, and given a fine of $300.00. (Lane was arrested on June 2, 2010 according to court records)
According to the Washington Post on June 10, 2010:
Jerry D. Lane had served as vice president of operations for the Capital Metro Area since 2006.
Lane, based in Gaithersburg, visited the Dulles Processing and Distribution Center in Sterling on June 1 and allegedly argued with the building’s manager, Kathleen J. Michaels.
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Department responded to a 911 call at the building about 2 p.m., said spokesman Kraig Troxell.
Michaels filed misdemeanor assault charges on June 3 and Lane was issued a summons to appear in Loudoun General District Court on June 17, according to court records.
USPS Spokesman Gerald McKiernan said Lane “separated” from the Postal Service on June 3, but could not say whether he was fired or resigned, citing personnel policy and privacy concerns. The U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General has launched an internal investigation, according to their spokesman Dan Mihalko. Multiple calls to Lane and Michaels went unanswered.
Lane worked for the Postal Service for 32 years and once managed Brentwood Postal Facility, where two workers died during the 2001 anthrax attacks.
