An FBI agent who works on a task force to combat child porn in Missouri has been charged with assault for allegedly choking a 13-year-old boy until he became unconscious, the Riverfront Times reports.

Special Agent Scott Armstrong, 37, is due back in court Tuesday after pleading not guilty to misdemeanor third-degree assault charges.

Armstrong works with the Boone County Sheriff’s Department Cyber Crimes Task Force to combat child porn.

It’s unclear why the child was at Armstrong’s home, but police said Armstrong strangled  the boy until “temporary unconsciousness.”

In his probable cause statement, Armstrong admitted to “placing his arm around” the teen’s neck until he lost consciousness.

Boone County Sheriff Dwayne Carey said the FBI never contacted him about the assault.

“The FBI never did contact me,” Carey said. “I wasn’t happy about that.”
