A Secret Service agent who scrawled anti-Muslim graffiti in the home of an Arab American accused of possessing $12 million in phony cashier's checks has been suspended without pay but will not face criminal charges, federal officials said.

The 10-year veteran of the Secret Service will be suspended for six months and forfeit more than $40,000 in salary for scrawling "Islam is Evil" and "Christ is King" on a Muslim prayer calendar while searching the Dearborn home of suspect Omar Shishani, U.S. Atty. Jeffrey Collins said.
