On October 7, United States Customs and Border Protection agents discovered that the two men in a truck at an immigration checkpoint were Hondurans. A border patrol agent was hurt when “the driver accelerated” while agents sought to remove the men from the truck. The men drove away in the truck but were later captured.

From the CBP press release

Agents referred the vehicle for a more extensive inspection, during which agents determined the two occupants were citizens of Honduras. As agents attempted to extract the subjects from the vehicle, the driver accelerated, injuring an agent. The driver and passenger fled the checkpoint in the vehicle and were apprehended near Carrizo Springs after both subjects bailed out. The injured agent was treated and released at a local hospital.

“The driver faces a charge of 18 USC § 111 – assault on a federal officer, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison,” CBP states. “The passenger was processed as per Customs and Border Protection guidelines.” 

Both of the Honduran men have a record of arrest for illegal entry—one of them was arrested in 2016 and the other in 2019 according to CBP.

“Acts of violence against our agents will not be tolerated,” Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz stated according to the press release. “This incident is an example of criminals who have a blatant disregard for the law as well as the safety of agents and the general public.”
