  1. I assume whomever's report that is... was arrested in Texas on Federal Drug Conspiracy charge. And U.S. Marshal service issued a detainer.

    A "Detainer" is just a written request from one law enforcement or correctional agency to another one which had custody of a prisoner. It basically requests that prisoner is to be surrendered to the requesting agency.
