An FBI agent who investigated the alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer was charged Monday with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder in connection with a domestic incident with his wife Sunday.

FBI Special Agent Richard Trask, 39, of Kalamazoo, is out of jail after posting a $10,000 personal recognizance bond after he was arraigned in 8th District Court in Kalamazoo, The Detroit News reports.

As a condition of his bond, Trask cannot carry a gun. 

If convicted, Trask faces up to 10 years in prison. 

Details of the charges have not yet been released. 

“In accordance with FBI policy, the incident is subject to internal review, and I cannot comment further at this time,” Detroit FBI spokeswoman Mara Schneider said.

Track testified in federal court about the alleged plot to kidnap and kill Whitmer.
