Former Penn State World Campus student Emerson Begolly was arrested by the FBI last week when two agents confronted him in a parking lot near New Bethlehem, PA. The meeting was arranged in advance with help by his mother.
FBI agents Brad Orsini and Edward Daer had Mr. Begolly's mother, Joan Kowalski, pick him up on a pretense that his grandmother was sick. While stopped at a Burger King, agents identified themselves and opened the doors.
The agents, who did not have a warrant for his arrest at the time, sought to question him about web postings he had made in support of Islamic extremists. When Begolly reached for his jacket, the agents struggled to restrain him. They found a fully loaded 9-mm handgun with the safety off and a bullet the chamber in his jacket.
