On Nov. 18, 2017, Hagel was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over for speeding in La Paz County.  Hagel initially denied possessing any firearms, despite being armed.  Six additional firearms were located inside the vehicle, along with 2,889 rounds of ammunition, bulletproof vests, and other tactical gear.  Hagel had an outstanding felony warrant from 2008 in a Maricopa County case involving theft of a vehicle.

The investigation in this case was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive, and the La Paz County Sheriff’s Office. The prosecution was handled by Lisa E. Jennis, Assistant U.S. Attorney, District of Arizona, Phoenix.
