How and why that comment ended up on Bennight's Youtube page on September 25, 2017, is still a mystery to the bondsman. Bennight received a call from a Mississippi FBI field office and then received another call from an FBI agent in Miami.
"I think we spoke with you in the past about a complaint that you made about someone making a comment on your YouTube channel", the agent said in a message Bennight provided to BuzzFeed News.
"They came to my office the next morning and asked me if I knew anything about the person", Bennight said.
"I wish I could have given them more information", Bennight said in a video posted Wednesday.More news: Marco Belinelli chose 76ers because he 'trusts the process'
