The university this week went further, suspending Juweid’s access to his school eMail account. Juweid said he needed access to old eMails to defend himself, and a university police officer delivered a CD containing them to him on Feb. 16.

But at 5:45 a.m. on Feb. 17, Juweid sent an eMail from his private account to Mason, Board of Regents President David Miles and others saying he could not get the CD to work and threatening to have the FBI raid his office if the situation wasn’t solved by 9 a.m.

“I DO NOT WISH ANY MORE BAD PUBLICITY FOR ME OR THE UNIVERSITY,” he wrote, copying an AP reporter on the message.
