Heather Foulke said she told a sheriff’s deputy that they had left a hotel party because Trask was “acting weird.” She believes he may have been drugged.
Trask got credit for two days in jail and will serve no additional time in custody. He lost his job with the FBI after the incident.MORE NEWS: State Fears Confusion After Michigan Restaurant Wins In Dining Ban Case
