No it doesn't.  It relies primarily on the account of the person who wasn't
arrested, and the video evidence he has pointed to.

If you do not assume a priori that he is part of the FBI, then information
that he provides does not come from the FBI, so the FBI's credibility is
irrelevant to the credibility of his information.

If you do assume a priori that he is part of the FBI, then your reasoning
that he is part of the FBI is circular - and, in this fallacy, has no need
to reference the FBI's credibility, nor any other facts or logic.
