An FBI agent may be held in contempt of court after confessing to being a “significant source” of leaks to the media about the insider trading investigation involving professional golfer Phil Mickelson and a Las Vegas sports gambler.

Prosecutors on Friday said the agent, who has not been identified, could be held in contempt for potentially jeopardizing the case with leaks involving famed gambler William “Billy” Walters, CNBC reports. 

The agent’s case has been referred to the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility and the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General.

The agent said he leaked information to the New York Times and Wall Street Journal.
