Richard Hornsby, the chief operating officer of the Federal Housing Finance Housing Authority (FHFA), was arrested last week. According to court filings, he has been charged with a single felony of threatening to kidnap or injure a person. In a hearing on April 30th, Hornsby was also ordered to stay away from FHFA offices and from his former boss, FHFA director Edward DeMarco, who retired at the end of April.

Court records and a police report allege that Hornsby threatened to shoot Mr. DeMarco and himself on at least one occasion after making increasingly threatening comments about DeMarco for some period of time.
