FBI employee charged with pointing gun at woman's head


HINGHAM, MASS. >> An FBI employee faces charges after allegedly pointing a handgun at a woman's head in a Hingham bar.

James Doyle, of Duxbury, was arraigned Wednesday on charges of assault with a dangerous weapon, carrying a firearm while intoxicated and disorderly conduct. He was released on personal recognizance.

Officers responded to the bar Tuesday night after a patron called police. Officers say they found Doyle at the bar with the properly licensed handgun in a holster at his waist.

The woman wasn't injured. Police say she and Doyle knew each other.

Harold Shaw, head of the FBI in Boston, says his office is cooperating with police and the district attorney. An internal investigation is also underway.

Doyle's lawyer could not be reached and there was no response at a listing for him.
