Border Patrol Agents Bitten On Two Occasions

Local News

The latest assault on a Border Patrol Agent happened Friday morning as Kingsville agents working the checkpoint arrested a suspect on smuggling charges.

As he was being taken into custody, authorities say the suspect became assaultive and bit the agent on the arm.

Earlier this week, McAllen Border Patrol came across a group of undocumented immigrants, when another agent was also bit, as one of the individuals attempted to flee from authorities.
