“Federal Bureau… he’s an FBI agent:” Body cam footage released in arrest of drunk fed who shot at officers


An eight-year FBI agent is facing charges for shooting at a police sergeant, after he allegedly suffered some kind of alcohol-fueled, paranoia attack.

Ruben Hernandez was arraigned in a Kent County courthouse on Dec. 7, after he was arrested and charged with assault with intent to commit great bodily harm, assault with a dangerous weapon and brandishing a firearm in public.

According to mlive.com, his attorney says Hernandez suffered a “paranoia attack, possibly fueled by alcohol, early Dec. 6 inside Planet Fitness.”


Hernandez is heard apologizing over and over on a body cam recording of the arrest. As he’s laying face-down on the ground, another officer pulls out his FBI identification badge.

“I’m sorry, I’m sorry,” he says, after shooting at Grand Rapids police Sgt. Neil Gomez– who had responded to a report of a man brandishing a firearm that night.

Hernandez, who is now free on bond, is feeling horrible about the whole thing, family members said. The Las Vegas-based special agent was in Michigan on an investigation and was expected to fly out the next day, mlive.com reported.

He apparently only has a “vague, hazy recollection of the events on Dec 6.
