Authorities: Border Patrol Agent Threatens Family with Gun, Kills Dog Because Wife Wouldn’t Kiss Him

A Border Patrol agent became so enraged when his wife wouldn’t kiss him that he threatened his family with a gun, shoved his wife and then shot their dog, Las Cruces Sun-News reports.

Carmelo Diaz Jr., 44, of Las Cruces was charged with three felonies, including aggravated assault against a family member and extreme animal cruelty.

His wife told police that when she refused to kiss her husband Wednesday, he pinned her to the ground and then threatened to commit suicide with a .40-caliber handgun.

Soon after, Diaz is accused of pointing the gun at his wife and their teenage son.

When they fled, he shot and paralyzed the family’s mixed-breed dog, which had to be euthanized.
