FBI Agent Convicted Of Assault On Teen, Still On Active Duty (Video)


FBI Special Agent Gerald John Rogero was found guilty of second-degree assault on a 15-year-old boy on Oct. 30. The incident happened on Dec. 5, 2014, outside an upscale apartment building in Chevy Chase, Maryland (video below).

Rogero was acquitted of first-degree assault and using a handgun during a felony, notes WUSA9.

In the video, Rogero yells at the estranged husband of a friend for being late for a child hand-off of a one-year-old girl.

There is plenty of shouting during the incident. At one point, the teen asks Rogero why he's getting involved, and Rogero knocks the teen on the ground.

Rogero then identifies himself as law enforcement, threatens to shoot the teen, pulls a gun and takes him into custody while family members call the police.

Rogero, who is a chief in the FBI’s counterterrorism division, reportedly experienced a shortness of breath after being convicted in a Rockville, Maryland, courthouse, and had to be taken to a local hospital.

Rogero will be sentenced on Jan. 20, 2016, according to officials.

FBI spokesman Christopher Allen confirmed to The Washington Post on Nov. 3 that Rogero is still on active duty while the FBI conducts its own internal investigation.
