The FBI. G Men. Many a little boy of the past dreamed of being such a member of the elite investigative force.

Care to go beyond that? How’s this?

So there ya go — a real-world look at a real FBI agent. They’re not all Scully and Mulder, folks.

Bishop turned himself in to authorities and was hit with one count of second-degree assault. Footloose Barney Fife is subject to further charges, dependent upon determination of his blood alcohol level.

The DA explained the process:

The Federal Bureau of Investigations no doubt boasts some of the smartest, most fantastic professionals the country has to offer. And they do some amazing work. But as the saying goes, “they can’t all be winners.”

So during this age of ridiculousness, when you read about the political actions of those in the FBI, don’t automatically imagine Clarice in Silence of the Lambs or Johnny Depp as Donnie Brasco. Remember — we may be dealing with a cross between this: 

and this:

…which is how we get things like this:

Something to think about.
