Arkansas DEA agent arrested for alleged drug crimes

A 42-year-old Drug Enforcement Administration agent has allegedly fallen outside of legal jurisdiction after the field office in Little Rock alleged he accepted bribes, as well as conspired to distribute controlled substances. The agent appeared on the afternoon of Dec. 20 before a U.S. Magistrate in Arkansas, and was henceforth detained. If he is found guilty of the drug crimes of which he is accused, he will likely face severe consequences.
