TAMPA - A federal grand jury in Tampa is asking for DNA and hair samples from a University of South Florida student jailed four weeks ago in South Carolina on explosives charges, his attorney said.
Andrew Savage said in a phone interview Wednesday night that he had no indication why the samples were being sought from his client, Youssef Megahed.
...Megahed and Mohamed[,] were pulled over for speeding in South Carolina on Aug. 4 about seven miles from the Goose Creek Naval Weapons Station, which houses a military prison for enemy combatants.
The men were charged with possession of an incendiary or explosive device, based in part on items found in the trunk of their car, authorities said. Mohamed said they were carrying fireworks.

Check the sheep. Baaa.
Anyone know anything about this attorney? Sounds like he’s going to be up a lot of late nights over this one unless he’s a hot shot hired by AQ.

If it's the same dude, the Goose Creek guys have an interesting lawyer.
Question for the legal eagles.
What right does a jury have to request evidence or testing?
Can a grand jury demand evidence?
Can a trial jury demand evidence?
Ooooh, I suspected as much. How likely is it two innocent students out riding around who happen to have a couple fireworks in their trunk have the means to rush out and hire this guy? Verrry interesting indeed.
In my travels in the middle east, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the most part, goats and camels are the perferred tryst object of the assorted lonely beduoin.
IIRC, there was a lawyer named "Andrew Savage" on a 'Survivor' series a few years back, Pearl Islands I think. He was from Chicago, I believe.
LOL. IIRC, also an Andrew Savage who lawyered for Jerry Springer’s show. Go figure.
So this is not just a rumor for comedy purposes?
