ASHEVILLE - An investigation by APD and FBI bomb experts into the June explosion of a truck on Beaucatcher Mountain has resulted in two felony charges. Scott Everett Ford, 39, of Asheville, has been charged with felony malicious use of explosives to damage property and felony burning personal property, according to arrest records. The warrant states Ford set fire to a 2012 Dodge Ram belonging to Jeffrey Warren Ponder "with the intent to injure or prejudice Progressive Insurance." Police records said firefighters responded to calls that the truck was on fire on June 16. One person received "non-life-threatening injuries" from being near the vehicle, APD spokeswoman Christina Hallingse told
Federal jury sides with FBI in wrongful termination case A federal jury in Mississippi has ruled against an FBI agent who sued the agency for wrongful termination as a result of reporting racial discrimination. Citing a U.S. Attorney's Office statement, WDAM-TV reports the Hattiesburg jury on Friday ruled that former agent Warren Flowers failed to prove his termination was due to reporting the alleged discrimination. The statement says the office provided evidence during the trial that Flowers was actually fired for dishonesty, including falsifying a form approving the use of a confidential source. Flowers sued the agency in 2017, saying he was discriminated against and worked at an office that
Since the release of its first season in October 2017, Mindhunter fans have been clamoring for more of Holden Ford, the FBI hostage-negotiator-turned-serial-killer-interviewer trying to learn what makes criminals tick. As viewers watch Ford (played by Jonathan Groff), along with Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) and Wendy Carr (Anna Torv), investigate real-life serial killers such as Edmund Kemper and Dennis Rader (a.k.a. BTK), tons couldn't help but wonder if Ford is actually a real person. Turns out, the answer is...kind of. While "Holden Ford" himself isn't a living, breathing member of the Bureau, many of the stories featured in the show's first season (and second, premiering on August 16) come
Ohio police arrested James P. Reardon, 20, on charges of telecommunications harassment and aggravated menacing.
Prince Charles' uncle and valued mentor Lord Mountbatten was a 'homosexual with a perversion for young boys', according to a secret dossier compiled by the FBI. The intelligence files describe the 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma and his wife Edwina as 'persons of extremely low morals' who frequently had extramarital affairs. One source said Mountbatten's penchant for young men made him 'an unfit man to direct any sort of military operations'. The files paint a very different picture of the last viceroy of India - who was hailed as a war hero who led allied efforts in southeast Asia before he was assassinated in 1979 by an IRA bomb. It is not known why agents began compiling the dossier, but
Parkland parents face uphill battle in wrongful death suit against FBI, shielded behind broad federal law Even if the federal government screws up, that doesn't mean it has to pay up in court. The FBI is facing a wrongful death lawsuit alleging the agency is liable for the 17 deaths in the Parkland school shooting because it mishandled tips and failed to stop the gunman. The government's lawyers are trying to get the suit tossed. They have a strong case, and Parkland parents battling the federal government in the courtroom will face an uphill climb, said Gregory Sisk, a law professor at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota and an expert in federal tort law. "It is hard to sue the federal
Editor's note: This piece has been updated to reflect corrected climate survey responses we received from the FBI earlier today. Here's a dog-bites-man story: Amidst near constant presidential attacks on FBI officials, accusations of treason, congressional investigation, and suggestions of “deep state” malfeasance, morale is up at the FBI. That's the surprising lesson from this year's FBI Climate Survey, a yearly document produced by the bureau with an array of metrics, across both headquarters and the FBI's 56 field offices, documenting how employees feel about the bureau, its leadership and the value of their work. Two of us (Anderson and Wittes) sought the data from this year's climate survey
