A U.S. soldier has been kicked out of his wife’s apartment for violating the landlord's strict guest policy.
Sergeant William Bolt had recently returned home to South Carolina to visit his wife and newborn child for the holidays. According to WGHP, Bolt is stationed in Missouri and hadn’t been back to South Carolina for six months. He also hadn't seen his child, who was born two weeks ago.
Bolt's wife lives at The Groves apartment complex in Central, South Carolina. Her lease specifies that visitors are not allowed to stay in the apartment for longer than seven days, and Bolt’s name is not on the agreement.
“I’m stationed in Missouri and we haven’t seen each other in six months. What’s the problem with me staying and visiting with my wife?” Bolt asked.
The landlord, whose name is reportedly Chuck, claimed that he has to enforce this rule on all of the tenants at the Groves complex. Bolt alleges that the landlord even threatened to raise the rent or press charges if he did not leave.
“He stated to me that he didn’t care about our situation, he didn’t care about me being in the military,” Bolt said regarding the landlord.
