16 hours later. He sent another email.
This time it was addressed not just to the CFTC lawyer, but the CFTC head, Gary Gensler too.
McCrudden was arrested at Newark airport last night after he returned on a flight from Singapore, according to a source familiar with the situation.
McCrudden used to live in Dix Hills in Long Island, where his wife – from who he is now divorced – and children still live.
McCrudden himself has spent months – possibly years – living in Sinapore recently.
There is mystery surrounding where he currently lives, though he may own an apartment on Long Island.
McCrudden runs a tiny fund called Alnbri Asset Management. He allegedly made threats against 47 different government officials.
He included Mary Schapiro, Richard Ketchum, Gary Gensler, and Michael Schaefer in his lawsuit and he sued them for $1 BILLION dollars.
