A University of Arizona Police Department report alleges that an FBI agent was caught masturbating in a women's restroom stall at the UA student union on Thursday, May 3.
UAPD Sgt. Eugene Mejia confirmed that Ryan James Seese is an FBI agent, who, according to the report, appears to be based in Phoenix. Mejia said Seese was cited and released to his supervisor, after the supervisor gave police permission to search the agent's government-issued vehicle, which was parked in a garage near the student union.
Deborah McCarly, a spokeswoman with the FBI's Phoenix division, said only that "an employee" has been accused of wrongdoing, citing confidentiality rules that prevented her from identifying the person or his or her position. She referred all questions back to UAPD.
"As it is their investigation, it is their matter, and obviously we're not going to comment on their investigation," McCarly said.
According to Mejia, Seese was to be arraigned earlier this morning on charges of public sexual indecency, public indecency and trespassing.
