The Williamson County [Tenn.] Sheriff’s Office arrested an IRS agent Thursday after authorities say he sexually assaulted a woman while he was performing an audit on a Fairview business.

Samuel Garza, 36, of East Main Street in Hendersonville, has been charged with two counts of sexual battery by an authority figure in connection to the reported assault that took place this week, court papers show.
