In that case, back in 2007, a sheriff's deputy with the Berkeley County Sherriff's Office in South Carolina became suspicious when University of South Florida student Ahmed Mohamed and his companion, fellow USF student Megahed, did not initially stop when they were pulled over for speeding. The officer said he saw Megahed disconnect a power cord from a laptop computer as he approached the car. The deputy searched the vehicle. According to court records, he found safety fuses, several sections of cut PVC piping containing a potassium nitrate explosive mixture and containers filled with gasoline.
The pair was arrested that night for transporting explosives. Following the arrest, the FBI in Tampa and South Carolina began an investigation with the Joint Terrorism Task Force.
Ahmed Mohamed pleaded guilty in 2008 to providing material support to terrorists; Youssef Megahed was acquitted by a jury in 2009.

Petraeus is scheduled to appear before a Congressional committee Friday to answer questions about the Sept. 11 attack on an American consulate in Benghazi, Libya that took the lives of four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.
The former CIA director told Headline News today his resignation had nothing to do with that attack and said he never shared classified information with his mistress Paula Broadwell.
