TUCSON, AZ - On June 2, Mexican national, Miguel Angel Acatzihua-Temoxtle, 25, was formally arraigned before U.S. Magistrate Judge Leslie A. Bowman.
Three days earlier, Border Patrol agents working near Newfield came upon several groups of illegal aliens traveling through the Baboquivari Mountain range.
In a press release, the U.S. Attorney's Office stated:
Acatzihua-Temoxtle fled from the agents by running up the side of a wash. In his effort to flee, Acatzihua-Temoxtle kicked several large boulders to slow the pursuit of one of the agents. While Border Patrol was trying to detain him, Acatzihua-Temoxtle physically assaulted two of the agents, including by attempting to strangle one agent with his own lanyard.
Acatzihua-Temoxtle has been charged with two counts of assault on a federal officer and assault on a federal officer with the use of a deadly or dangerous weapon.
If convicted, the illegal alien faces up to 20 years in federal prison.
