Various Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents have been involved in activities like dating drug dealers, harassing ex-boyfriends with naked pictures, and pointing guns at pet dogs, according to internal documents.

Disciplinary files from the Bureau's Office of Professional Responsibility shows an extraordinary range of wrongdoings that reveal the disordered personal lives of some of America's top law enforcers, the Telegraph reports.

A woman e-mailed a nude photograph of herself to her ex-boyfriend's wife and then continued to harass the couple despite two warnings from senior officials. The Bureau concluded she was suffering from depression related to the break-up and allowed her to return to work after 10 days, the paper added.

However, the sexually picture was only one of what FBI assistant director Candice Will described as a rash of sexting cases to an American channel.

Two other employees, whose genders were not specified, sent sexually explicit messages to fellow members of the Bureau, one a work Blackberry during office hours. The second employee included a nude photograph, which created office gossip and negatively impacted office operations, the paper reported.

Will said when you are given an FBI BlackBerry, it's for official use, adding it's not to text the woman in another office who you found attractive or to send a picture of yourself in a state of undress.

During another incident, an employee snapped during an argument with their spouse and went on to snap an e-reader in half. As the situation deteriorated they pointed an unloaded gun at dog's head while dog was sitting in spouse's lap, and the agent was suspended for 45 days.

The logs, which contain incidents from July 2012 to January, also describe how a woman "engaged in a romantic relationship with former boyfriend (now husband) knowing he was a drug user/dealer". She was sacked after lying about the relationship.(ANI)
