The commander of the 75th Ranger Regiment has been reprimanded following allegations of misconduct while leading the Army's elite raid force, Army Times has learned.

The informal investigation, in accordance with Army Regulation 15-6, into Col. Christopher Vanek "looked into matters concerning command climate, perception and judgment," said Lt. Col. Mark Lastoria, a spokesman for U.S. Army Special Operations Command, in a statement.

Lt. Gen. Charles Cleveland, commanding general of USASOC, directed the investigation.
Cleveland "took action accordingly" after receiving the findings of the investigation, Lastoria said in the statement.

Lastoria did not provide further details about what prompted the investigation, what the allegations entailed, and what action was taken by Cleveland.
