Border Patrol Statement on Alcaráz Ochoa Arrest

Posted By on Mon, Feb 18, 2013 at 5:00 PM

The statement we've been waiting for to be attributed to U.S. Customs and Border Protection on yesterday's arrest of Raul Alcaraz Ochoa:

On Feb. 17, Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents responded to a request for assistance by the Tucson Police Department. At the scene, a Mexican male, who is a Lawfully Admitted Permanent Resident, impeded law enforcement by lying beneath a Border Patrol vehicle after agents took several subjects into custody for being illegally present in the United States. The man was subsequently arrested by Border Patrol agents after failing to respond to repeated warnings and refusing to move from beneath the vehicle.

He has been released from Border Patrol custody.

The Tucson Police Department has yet to comment to the Range on yesterday's call and incident.
