Pakistani Court Dismisses Criminal Case Against FBI Agent Who Tried to Board Flight with Bullets, Knife

An FBI agent who was arrested in Pakistan for trying to board a flight with bullets and a knife in his luggage will not be charged after all, Reuters reports.

A Pakistani court dismissed the case Monday in a move likely intended to keep from souring U.S.-Pakistani ties.

Joel Cox, an FBI agent for the Miami Field Office, was arrested May 4 after trying to board a civilian flight with the knife and bullets. He was jailed for three days before being released on $10,000 bond.

“Since he was not carrying a weapon, only bullets were found from his luggage, the investigation report recommended the cancellation of the case,” Inspector Khalid Mehmood told Reuters.
