FBI Pays Environmentalist $100,000 after Wrongful Arrest

The FBI will issue a rare "letter of regret" and pay environmentalist Josh Connole $100,000 after mistakenly arresting him for domestic terrorism. Agents followed Connole for several days in 2003, after arson-vandalism attacks at four Southern California car dealerships in which gas-guzzlers were spray-painted. His suspicious activities included living communally with fellow vegans, installing solar panels, protesting the Iraq war, and driving an electric car.
