BUFFALO — Authorities say an FBI agent has been charged with public lewdness after a trucker told state troopers that the man made lewd gestures toward him while not wearing pants and driving on the Thruway outside Buffalo.
State police tell local media outlets that Special Agent John Yervelli of the FBI’s Buffalo office was charged late Friday night after a trooper pulled over his minivan at a toll plaza just south of the city.
Officials say a truck driver traveling in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 90 told troopers the man driving the van wasn’t wearing plants when he pulled alongside the truck and made lewd gestures.
The 48-year-old Yervelli was released on a ticket to appear in Eden Town Court.
FBI officials say they’re not commenting on the charge.
