Teresa Carlson, special agent in charge of the Milwaukee FBI office, was quietly reassigned to the agency’s headquarters after she refused to testify in a federal courtroom in Virginia, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Carlson is accused of trying to influence a subordinate’s testimony on whether the FBI refused to give an Army veteran a job because of his disabilities.

The Office of Inspector General is investigating what could become a criminal case, the Journal Sentinel reported.

Carlson is accused of telling an agent “to come down on the side of the government in this matter,” according to court records in the case.
