Can they kick a Soldier out of the Army without evidence?

My brother states he is getting kicked out of Army for being guilty by association. He was in a car accident with a new Soldier. My brother and a friend were driving this new Soldier around and they had an accident. The authorities found spice on this Soldier. They ransack all the Soldiers involved, my brothers room, blood test everything comes up clean. Yet they are kicking him out for reason of guilty of association. Is this possible?

No! If what you state is true about your brother it would be virtually impossible for him to be separated.  The local JAG will not separate a Soldier unless there is evidence.  If you brother feels he has been treated unfairly he has several courses of action.  He can contact the local JAG, obtain a local attorney with prior JAG experience, or contact the IG.  They would not separate him for guilty by association.
