Rep. Michael Grimm in custody, officials say - CNN.com(CNN) -- U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm, R-New York, was taken into federal custody on charges relating to a failed restaurant business and allegations that he made false statements, law enforcement officials said Monday.
His lawyer and U.S. officials briefed on the matter said previously that prosecutors were preparing charges, capping a two-year FBI investigation that ranged from his business dealings to his first campaign for Congress in 2010.
The former FBI agent and two-term Republican lawmaker from New York made headlines when he was shown on camera threatening to throw a reporter over a Capitol Hill balcony after an interview following the State of the Union address in January.
An ex FBI Agent no less...
