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.

After inspecting the truck, agents found a loaded shotgun and 20-30 shells in the passenger seat. According to the announcement, the man will be prosecuted under federal statutes that makes it illegal to flee from an immigration checkpoint and unlawful acts.

“High speed flight from a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint is a federal crime, and will not be tolerated,” Chief Patrol Agent Rodney S. Scott said. “Violators endanger the lives of the general public, those we are sworn to protect, and we will ensure that anyone failing to yield at an immigration checkpoint faces criminal charges.”

    now all the uneducated government minions have to do is prove that any so called law, edict, policy, statute, code, etc.. applies to anyone! Fyi; government agents willingness to use violence, blunt force, threats, coercion and duress isn’t proof of applicability!
    Oh there will be some statist whose head will now implode over the challenge.. GREAT! Where are your facts that proves any of this drivel applies to anyone simply because of their physically being within a given geographic location?

    Remember, we want your FACTS, not your feelings, beliefs, opinions or the feelings, beliefs or opinions of others..just facts! Not hyperbole, hearsay, rumor, speculation, assumptions, presumptions, hypotheticals, conjecture, sophistry, obfuscation, scenarios, what if’s, fraud or lies.
    Nor any historical document that doesn’t have the wet ink signature of anyone being charged. Nor any document that is compulsory,.. threats, duress and coercion to accept a compulsory document, nullifies any implied acceptance or consent! Well, unless you endorse slavery. You don’t endorse slavery, do you??
    Further; You shall not invoke legal citations, laws, statutes, codes, policies, treaties, etc, or any Constitution or any amendments to any Constitution, as that presupposes that any of it is applicable, when that is what is in question in the first place!
