An FBI agent is under fire after a TV news team caught him working a second job in Houston while allegedly on the clock with the bureau.

After the KHOU 11 News I-Team questioned Supervisory Special Agent Brian Ritchie about setting up ATMs during the workday, the FBI has opened an investigation, the I-Team reported [1].

The focus is whether Ritchie was misusing an FBI van when he delivered the ATMs.

“If there is a willful misuse of a government vehicle, that’s a violation of FBI regulations,” Larry Karson, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at the University of Houston Downtown, told KHOU.
