The FBI has arrested the head of an asset management firm for allegedly threatening 47 government officials with the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission.

McCrudden is expected to be arraigned in federal court in Central Islip, New York Friday afternoon, a spokesman for U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch said.
