FORT WORTH, TEXAS (AP) - Police in Fort Worth say a top SEC official prosecuting Texas billionaire R. Allen Stanford’s fraud case has been accused of assaulting an officer.

Police Sgt. Pedro Criado says 46-year-old J. Kevin Edmundson was arrested downtown Saturday after he resisted officers who intended to arrest him for public intoxication. He says Edmundson tried to free an arm as he was being handcuffed and hit a female officer in the eye.

Edmundson is the associate director of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s office in Fort Worth and is one of the attorneys prosecuting the $8 billion fraud case against Stanford.

He was released Sunday. A jail official said no bond information was listed.

Neither Edmundson nor his attorney returned calls Tuesday.
