Body Cam Video Shows Drunk, Armed FBI Agent at Grand Rapids Police Department

A drunk and armed FBI agent walked inside Grand Rapids Police Department headquarters after his partner was arrested for shooting at officers.

Agent John Salazar hasn’t been charged, even though he was in possession of a gun while being drunk. He also appeared to drive to police headquarters, WoodTV.com reports.

His partner, Ruben Hernandez was in custody after firing at a Grand Rapids officer outside of a gym.

Body cam footage shows Salazar acting strangely.

Records obtained by 24 Hour News 8 show that Salazar and Hernandez bought 12 beers at a steakhouse before going to Sensations Showgirls nightclub for five more drinks.

The shooting occurred after the two separated for the night.

Prosecutors are now reviewing the video to determine whether charges are appropriate.

Homeland Security Pressured to Adopt Strict Rule about Employee Behavior Abroad

visasBy Steve Neavling

Homeland Security officials have been caught drinking, using drugs and soliciting prostitutes while working outside of the country.

Now the inspector general wants Homeland Security to adopt specific policies to prevent such behavior while abroad, the Federal Times reports. 

The inspector general examined the departments policies for the 1,5000 employees who work outside the country and discovered very few guidelines for off-duty behavior.

“To minimize the risk of misconduct and its potential negative effect on the Department’s ability to accomplish its mission, DHS should ensure it has comprehensive policies specifically addressing off-duty conduct abroad and make certain all employees traveling and working abroad are adequately trained and acknowledge and understand these policies,” the report said.

States are considering whether to lower legal blood-alcohol levels from 0.08 to 0.05 in an effort to curb car accidents, CBS 13 in Sacramento reports. 

The National Transportation Safety Board is pushing for the change for the second time, saying the reduced limit would save nearly 1,000 lives.

“Alcohol remains the No. 1 killer on our roadways,” said Chris Cochran with the California Office of Traffic Safety.

All lowered states their legal limit to 0.08 in 2013.

“Individual states can change it if they want to, but there is an incentive not to. They’ll lose federal dollars,” he said.

An FBI Employee in the bureau’s Chicago office has been charged with raping a teenage babysitter in his Indiana home.

ABC7 reports that James Luttinen, 33, is accused of raping the teenage relative in July while he was drunk and his family was in the next room at his home in northwest Indiana.

Although court records indicate he admitted sexually assaulting the girl in July, he continued working at the FBI field office until an arrest warrant was filed two weeks ago.

The computer systems specialist for the FBI had high security clearance and worked at the office since 2009.

According to a police affidavit, Luttinen gave the girl alcohol and said he was “three sheets to the wind”  and there was this “young, good-looking girl, rubbing up against him” so  “I decided to just go with it.”

Drunken Brawl Breaks Out at National Border Patrol Council Meeting

A drunken brawl broke out at a National Border Patrol Council meeting in San Diego, resulting in nine civil harassment restraining orders being filed by four agents, ABC 10 News reports.

The fight at Local 1613 broke out during the June 9 meeting as union members were drinking.

The union’s meeting at Crowne Plaza Hotel in Mission Valley included an open bar tab “in order to foster a sense of brotherhood and boost morale.”

It appears the bar fostered some ill-will when an altercation broke out among intoxicated members, according to ABC News.

Former Local 1613 President Robert Harlan complained that a union member “started kicking me in the head, and then he straddled me and started wailing me with both fists on the sides of my head and my ears repeatedly, and there was nothing I could do to defend myself.”

The San Diego Police Department investigated the brawl and handed the case over to the prosecutor for potential charges.

Secret Service Has Strict, New Policy Limiting When Agents Can Drive After Drinking

By Steve Neavling

The Secret Service is implementing a new policy that bars agents and other employees from driving government cars within 10 hours of drinking alcohol, The Washington Post reports. 

The policy comes after the embarrassing discovery that two agents allegedly interrupted a bomb-threat investigation scene at the White House earlier this month.

The new rules also came a day before Secret Service Director Joseph P. Clancy testified before a House committee.

“Secret Service employees are responsible for conducting themselves in a manner that reflects the highest standards of the United States Government and must maintain an appropriate state of awareness and mission preparedness,” says the Monday memo to staff.

Anyone who violates the policy will be “subject to the full range of available disciplinary and adverse actions up to and including removal from employment,” the memo read.

Drunken Secret Service Agents May Not Have Interrupted Investigation at White House

By Steve Neavling

Serious claims launched against Secret Service agents may not be true.

CNN interviewed law enforcement officials who contradicted a Washington Post story that asserted two Secret Service agents crashed through a crime scene at the White House.

But according to two law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation, the agents did not interrupt an active investigation.

CNN also took issue with the Post’s claim that a senior supervisor prevented law enforcement from taking a field sobriety test.

“There is a sense now that that might not be true,” one of the sources said.

Federal officials, including lawmakers, are looking into the case.
