Two women were arguing “over nothing” at a Massachusetts restaurant when an FBI employee sitting between them pointed a gun to one of their heads, court documents show.

Hingham police arrested James M. Doyle, who said he was an FBI supervisor and a friend of the victim, the Boston Globe reports. 

Police said Doyle was intoxicated and acknowledged he made a “big mistake” by pointing a Glock 22 at one of the women’s heads.

No one was injured.

Doyle was charged Wednesday assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, possessing a firearm while intoxicated and disorderly conduct.

Harold H. shaw, special agent in charge of the agency’s Boston bureau, said the FBI “takes allegations of misconduct very seriously.”

While new spread across the U.S. that three Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one of them was found passed out drunk in a hallway.

But the Washington Post reports that hard-partying Amsterdam residents barely registered the news.

The newspapers weren’t interested either.

“These are young guys. It happens,” said one driver who had been contracted to help hundreds of Secret Service agents get around the Netherlands during the logistically complicated presidential trip. “You take them to a place like Amsterdam and they have a good time,” he said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because his employer had not granted him permission to talk to the news media.

Back in 2008, Colombo mobster Michael “Mickey” Souza had had enough, according to the New York Daily News.

He was facing up to 30 years in prison on drug charges. He wanted to start singing to the feds.

” ‘Hello, John,’ ” he wrote to John Buretta, the chief of the Brooklyn U.S. attorney’s organized-crime section,the Daily News reported. He wanted to help “seal up” some fed cases.

“P.S. I am so ready to go to [the witness protection program] . . . can’t do this anymore,” Souza wrote.

Last week, Souza, 42, testified as a government witness in the racketeering trial of Genovese mobster Anthony Antico in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn.

The Daily News reports that Souza was a little bit of a goof.

He once shot himself while tucking a gun in his sweatpants, got arrested for boating while drunk and injured a fellow mobster while they busted up a funeral parlor.

He testified in court that he was “honorably discharged” from high school because “I baseball-batted somebody on school property.”

And oh yes, at one point, the paper reported, “he was marked for death by his mobster father-in-law” after assaulting his wife.

Henry Hill, the real life mobster turned FBI snitch who inspired the movie “Goodfellas”, is in trouble again.

Fairview Heights, Ill.  Police arrested Hill, 66, on Sunday at a hotel for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, the Associated Press reported.

The paper reports Hill was in the area for a showing of his art work.

Hill told the Belleville News-Democrat he had  “one too many” drinks in a hotel lobby and that things “got pretty foggy after that.”

Hill, who was played by actor Ray Liotta in the movie Goodfellas, is free on bond.

The FBI got Hill to snitch on the mob after busting him for drugs. He was booted from the witness protection program after getting busted on drugs in the 1990s.

Earlier this year, in California,  Hill was sentenced to two years probation after pleading guilty to two misdemeanor counts of public intoxication.

Secret Service Found Drunk Boris Yeltsin in Underwear Hailing Cab for Pizza

Secret Service agents have seen a lot of history. This is one drop of history that was apparently kept secret for a long time. Yelstin in all likelihood probably had a little too much vodka. And what better way to take the edge off of a vodka binge than with a good slice of pizza.

WASHINGTON — Boris Yeltsin got so drunk during a 1995 visit to Washington that Secret Service agents found him a few hundred feet from the White House clad only in his underwear and trying to hail a cab – because, he explained, he wanted a pizza.

The encounter and near international incident involving the former Russian President was revealed yesterday in a new oral history of Bill Clinton’s presidency, based on 79 taped interviews between Mr Clinton and the historian Taylor Branch during late-night visits to the White House.
