Beierle joined the U.S. Army in 2008 and served a two-year hitch, according to his LinkedIn profile.
Beierle's Facebook profile, which has not been updated since 2012, displayed several photos of his time in military service.
From 2011 to 2013, Beierle attended Florida State University in Tallahassee. According to his LinkedIn profile, he received a master's degree in public administration and also was awarded a master's of science in planning, and urban and regional planning.
Beierle was arrested in Tallahassee in 2012 and 2016 but charges were dropped in both cases, according to court records obtained by WCTV. In 2012 he was accused of grabbing a woman in a dining hall of the Florida State campus. The 2016 arrest occurred at a Tallahassee apartment complex, where Beierle was accused of grabbing a woman's buttocks while she was lying at a swimming pool.
In YouTube videos believed to be posted by Beierle, he said promiscuous women should be crucified and compared himself to Elliot Rodger, a self-described "incel" – or "involuntary celibate" – who killed six people near the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 2014, the AP reported. Beierle also "said many black women were 'disgusting'" and berated women who date black men, according to the AP. Police have not confirmed that the videos were posted by Beierle.
