A Phoenix man under investigation for domestic violence began dating an FBI agent -- and landed in jail after she learned of his secret.

Caleb Heath VanGrinsven, 31, was arrested soon after leaving the female agent's Flagstaff residence on May 14 in an operation involving three agencies. The employee of a Phoenix air-ambulance firm and former Wyoming resident has been in federal custody since then, with a detention hearing scheduled for Tuesday morning.

The case began, says a federal complaint, when FBI agent Rachael Herrick "recently discovered that her boyfriend (VanGrinsven) was a person of interest in a law enforcement investigation in Wyoming."
