A Border Patrol agent is home recovering from being run over by a ATV vehicle.
U.S. Border Patrol officials say the agent was assaulted while responding to possible illegal activity near Penitas on Tuesday night. The agent was struck by ATV driven by a adult and teen near the border. After striking the agent, both suspects took off and hid in the bushes, but both were found and arrested.
They are now in FBI custody and emergency crews took the injured officer to McAllen Medical Center where he was treated and released.
