Ex-FBI agent charged with beating her father

Published: Thu, March 29, 2012 @ 3:11 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A 46-year-old woman, who police listed as a former FBI agent, has been charged with domestic violence for allegedly assaulting her partially blind father this week.

Police arrested Sheila Lawson on Wednesday on Katherine Street on the city’s East Side. Officers were sent to the home when Lawson’s father called saying his daughter is under stress about getting her job back and had yelled screamed and hit him.

The man told police Lawson hit him in the back of his head and on the shoulder. Lawson told police she did hit her father because he was getting on her nerves.

The father, while police were investigating the matter, told his daughter, “You need help. That’s why they kicked you out of the FBI.”

The statement, reportedly sent Lawson into a frenzy, causing her to curse the man and punch him in the head in front of officers.

Lawson still threatened to do her father bodily harm as she was being led away by police.

I have known this person my entire life. She is, and has always been, a very decent person. She is educated, intelligent and professional. THAT is how she got hired as an FBI agent. Clearly, she has suffered some sort of psychotic episode. It could happen to anyone -- it could happen to YOU -- so, please don't speak of that which you know nothing about. That is all. Thank you.
