TUCSON - An immigration activist was arrested by the Border Patrol Sunday when he intervened in a stop by Tucson Police.
Raul Ochoa was arrested near Ninth Avenue and 23rd Street after crawling under a Border Patrol car, reports indicate.
He was intervening in a stop involving a father of six by Tucson Police. The Border Patrol was called out to the scene. Ochoa then laid under the Border Patrol vehicle, where he was pepper sprayed and arrested, according to reports.
Border Patrol agents took several of the suspects into custody for being illegally present in the U.S., Border Patrol spokesman Jeremy Copeland said.
As of Sunday evening, an attorney was still trying to locate Ochoa.
