Is there any cases, or legal precedence that allows for Sheriffs or State LEO to arrest Federal agents for enforcing federal law?
None that I am aware of, however, there is also nothing I am aware of that allows Federal agents to break the law while "enforcing" Federal law.

Agents are expected to notify local LEOs, obey all laws and have the proper writs and warrants, and respect local authority. In other words, all the "i"'s dotted and "t"s crossed.

When this doesn't happen, isn't enforced from the top down by the Fed, you can get monumental screw-ups like Ruby Ridge and Waco.

I'm not a lawyer, and this is not legal advice, just an observation from the peanut gallery, about the way I understand things are supposed to work, and what can happen when the process isn't worked properly.
