SEC Official in Fort Worth, Texas Accused of Assaulting Police Officer

In Fort Worth, Texas, police say a high-ranking official in the SEC’s Forth Worth office has been accused of assaulting a police officer.  The AP reports that Police Sgt. Pedro Criado says J. Kevin Edmundson, Associate Director in the SEC’s Fort Worth Regional Office,

was arrested downtown Saturday after he resisted officers who intended to arrest him for public intoxication. He says Edmundson tried to free an arm as he was being handcuffed and hit a female officer in the eye.

Edmundson, who is reportedly one of the attorneys prosecuting the $8 billion fraud case against Texas billionaire R. Allen Stanford, was released Sunday.
