Border Patrol agents arrested a man who tried to flee from a checkpoint near Niland, California, last week and uncovered a shotgun, according to an announcement.
The man, identified only as a 35-year-old U.S. citizen, driving a U-Haul truck up to a check point around 5 p.m. on Nov. 8 alerted a K-9 on the scene. The man was ordered to drive the truck to a secondary position, but instead sped away.
Agents pursued the man and the chase ended in a residential area after they deployed a tire deflation device. But the man refused to exit the truck, so agents were forced to extract him.
