FBI Agent Arrested For Driving Without Pants and Allegedly Trying to Seduce a Truck Driver

Categories: FBI, Naked People

Some law enforcement officers like to unwind from a tough week on the job with a nice drink. Apparently one Buffalo, N.Y. FBI agent prefers to unwind by unzipping his pants and seducing truck drivers.

John A. Yervelli, a 48-year-old special agent for the FBI's Buffalo office, allegedly pulled alongside a truck on an upstate thruway, signaled to the driver of the truck that he was not wearing any pants and proceeded to make lewd gestures, according to a Buffalo News report.

The alleged incident occurred around 9 p.m. Friday night -- (you know, around the time when most agents might de-stress at the bar, relax at home with their families or generally not drive pants-less on a thruway.)

Not long after the truck driver alerted authorities, Yervelli was pulled over by a state trooper and arrested on misdemeanor public lewdness charges. He faces up to 30 days in jail and a $500 fine if convicted, according to the report.

No word yet on whether Yervelli will keep his job or whether pants-less driving violates bureau protocol.

The FBI Will Destroy Your Social Media (But Maybe For the Right Reasons)

The Internet continues to face rough times, falling victim to the nationwide heat wave, the leap second and, now, the lifting of an FBI anti-virus program. Gotta love repetition.

At midnight, 64,000 computers in the United States and a quarter million worldwide might be forced off the Internet due to a stopgap provision provided by the federal police force that's on its last legs. The program was set up in November to allow the machines infected with the "doomsday virus" DNSChanger (or its more conspicuous title, Operation Ghost Click) to continue to be connected to the Web. 

This move came after the FBI realized that if it all eliminated the virus all together, those tens of thousands of computers would have immediately lost Internet connection. So, in order to prevent that, it set up a kind of safety net that would keep the malware at bay... for the time being.

But the FBI is not unleashing SkyNet for no reason (at least, we hope not), other than the fact that the court order it received to keep the servers running has expired. By ending the safety net, the federal police force hopes to step away from the computer protection industry and pass the torch over to the providers responsible for connecting uses to the Web. 

In other digital words, the FBI is putting the Internet up for security adoption.
