CENTRAL, South Carolina -- Every soldier deserves a warm homecoming, but that's not what one man got when he went to south carolina to visit his family.

Sargeant William Bolt is stationed in Missouri, and was granted two weeks leave to see his wife and newborn baby, but his wife's landlord says that he can't stay at her apartment because he's not on the lease.

Bolt says, "If I don't vacate the premises, he's gonna tow my vehicle and press charges against me for criminal trespassing. He stated to me that he didn't care about our situation, he didn't care about me being in the military."

The landlord says the rule is clearly stated in the lease signed by Bolt's wife,  that all visitors have to be out after seven days.

Bolt and his wife say the lease agreement is too vague, and an attorney from the area agrees.

Attorney Amber Foster says, "It is very unclear. I do believe he would likely have a very difficult time enforcing this provision based on the vagueness of it and due to the fact that this officer is her spouse."

And you wonder why some landlords get such a bad reputation? So much for supporting this troop.
