HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. (Aug. 25, 2015)– Police arrested an agent from the Indianapolis field office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) over the weekend after an accident involving an FBI vehicle and a motorcyclist.
The accident happened on Saturday near West 96th Street and Hazel Dell Parkway. Robert Middleton, 43, was driving a 2012 Dodge Charger when he collided with Rick Hubbard, 50, who was driving a 2014 Harley Davidson motorcycle. Hubbard was stopped at a red light when Middleton collided with him.
Hubbard sustained minor injuries to his head and was taken to St. Vincent Hospital where he was treated and released.
Middleton was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated and taken to the Hamilton County jail. His bond was set at $2,500. He has been placed on administrative leave, according to FBI Special Agent in Charge W. Jay Abbott.
“Because this is an ongoing matter, including an investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General, we are unable to provide further comment at this time,” said Abbott.
