An American trucker who refused to answer questions from the Border Patrol was yanked out of his truck by agents after they smashed his window as a camera rolled, the Houston Chronicle reports.

The truck driver was arrested at a checkpoint near Falfurrias in Texas, about 60 miles north of the border.

When asked whether he was an America citizen, the trucker said he would “rather not” answer.

Despite warnings of being removed from the truck, the driver refused to answer questions.

“You don’t have probable cause. I don’t have to answer the questions,” the truck driver said. “If I am breaking the law, then arrest me. I am not getting out of the truck, I do not consent.”

An agent accuses the driver of refusing to cooperate with an immigration inspection and then smashes the window before pulling the driver out.

No charges have yet been filed against the driver in federal court.

Perpetrators wearing “FBI” vests and badges around their neck tried to kidnap women in two separate incidents in Buffalo, the Buffalo News reports.

The Buffalo News wrote that the victim believed she was being legitimately arrested after they rushed up to her, screaming “FBI, you’re wanted for questioning in a homicide” and placed handcuffs on her.

Another victim escaped when the would-be kidnappers tried to force her into an SUV.

There people were charged with attempted kidnapping: Hakim Owens, 22; Paul Manning, 19; and Christopher Southerns, 22.

FBI spokesman Maureen Dempsey said the suspects were unusually young for FBI agents, noting that the minimum age is 22 with a four-year college degree and three years of work experience.

TSA Astonished That People Continue to Bring Guns to Airport in Carry-On Bags

By Steve Neavling

It has become almost too common: Travelers are caught with guns in the carry-on bags.

Even after Sept. 11, when much more innocuous objects were banned from flights, people bring guns to airports, often because they forgot they had the weapon on the them.

WCIV reports that a South Carolina man was arrested after a loaded pistol was found in his carry-on bag.

TSA officials found the Glock .40 caliber pistol at the security checkpoint.

Just this year, the TSA has discovered five firearms at the airport.

“Passengers are responsible for the contents of bags they bring to the checkpoint,” said Mark Howell, TSA spokesman in a prepared statement. “Our advice is to look through bags thoroughly before coming to the airport to make sure there are no illegal or prohibited items.”
