Columnist's Caller Avoids FBI Charges

September 21, 2002|From Associated Press

CHICAGO — The FBI said Friday that there was insufficient evidence to file charges against the woman whose telephone calls to columnist Bob Greene led him to contact agents months before he resigned from the Chicago Tribune over a sexual encounter with a teenager.

Greene contacted the FBI on June 20 and "expressed concerns over a series of telephone calls that he had recently received, which he felt were threatening in nature," the FBI said.

Agents interviewed Greene and a woman who said she made the calls but denied making threats.
