FORT BRAGG, North Carolina — Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was arraigned on charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy during a hearing preceding his court martial at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, on Tuesday.

Sporting a shaved head and a blue military dress uniform, Bergdahl did not enter a plea, did not indicate a preference for a jury or bench trial and spoke only when responding to the judge.

Approximately 50 people, an even split of media members and military personnel, attended the 11-minute proceeding. The next hearing is January 12.
