Federal authorities are on the hunt for a human smuggler who struck a Border Patrol agent in the face in southern California, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. 

Authorities were moving in on a suspected smuggler who was helping 14 people navigate the hazardous terrain near Carries Mountain near Jacumba on Sunday night.

The suspect, Martel Valencia-Cortez, 39, is accused of throwing a large rock at Border Patrol agents, striking one of them in the face.

Valencia-Cortez returned fire but didn’t appear to injure him as he fled toward Mexico.

Agents arrested and interviewed the 14 people who were with Valencia-Cortez.

An Arizona rancher who was convicted of assaulting a Border Patrol agent has been sentenced to eight months in prison, The Associated Press reports. 

Derek Garland, 48, was pulled over in April 2014 after triggering a sensor in an area known for smuggling near the U.S.-Mexico border.

Garland pulled out an unholstered pistol and was acting belligerently, yelling racial slurs and profanity at the agent.

The incident was captured on video.

FBI Agent Who Assaulted Teenager and Threatened to Shoot Him, Still on Duty

By Steve Neavling

An FBI agent caught on video assaulting a much smaller teenager and then pointing a gun at the victim remains on active duty despite an assault conviction stemming from the incident.

FBI Agent Gerald Rogero was off-duty outside of a high-rise apartment building in Chevy Chase, Md., when he struck the 15-year-old in the chest.

Rogero then pulled out a gun and placed the teen under arrest.

“If I have to shoot you, I will,” he said. “Don’t make me shoot you.”

Rogero, who served as a chief in the FBI’s counterterrorism division for nearly 20 years, was found guilty last week of second-degree assault, The Washington Post reports. 

Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 20.

“At the end of the day, we are here because of the defendant’s conduct, off duty, while armed,” Assistant State’s Attorney John Lalos said.

Rogero’s attorney argued that the agent should be allowed to carry a gun.

“It’s clear that in order for him to continue to be an FBI agent, he needs to be armed 24 hours a day,” Marlon Griffith said.

A Mexican man who attacked a Border Patrol agent last week near Donna, Texas, has been arrested, Valley Central reports. 

The attack allegedly occurred following a high-speed chase after a Chevrolet Tahoe nearly struck a Border Patrol vehicle in an area “notorious for undocumented aliens and narcotic crossing,” federal record show.

The high-speed chase ended with Roberto Flores-Cayetano leaping out of the Tahoe and running, officials said in a criminal complaint.

“Agent Hernandez advised Flores-Cayetano to stay on the ground and to put his hands behind his back, but he refused,” according to the criminal complaint.

A struggle ensued, and the agent used a Taser to subdue the suspect.

A passenger got away and left behind about 524 pounds of marijuana.

The passenger remains on the loose.

It’s getting a little steamy in Allentown, Pa., where the FBI has opened a city hall investigation.

Reilley shut down his political consulting firm on July 2, the day when FBI agents raided Allentown City Hall in search of contracts and other related documents.

The man he allegedly attacked was Brendan Hansbury, the brother-in-law of Mike Fleck, who had served as campaign manager to Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski.

By Steve Neavling

A Saudi Arabian man will be deported after pleading guilty this week to punching a TSA officer in the face at the Orlando International Airport in January.

Mohammed Abdullah Alomaim, 43, was sentenced to time served and a two-year supervised release, The Orlando Sentinel reports.

“As a result of his conviction, Alomaim will be deported from the United States,” a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida said.

In January, a TSA officer approached Alomaim for acting erratically and leaving his bag unattended. Alomaim responded by punching the officer in the face.

“Alomaim was immediately taken into custody,” the statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

The FBI handled the investigation.
