EL PASO, Texas - A Dallas trucker detained for seven months in Mexico on accusations that he had tried to smuggle assault rifle ammunition into the country has returned to the United States.
Jabin Bogan was released from a Mexican prison last week but was detained by immigration authorities until Friday.
Back in the U.S., he thanked his supporters before breaking down in tears.
He says it was hard to be away from his family and not get any visitors. He says he was treated poorly but didn't elaborate.
Bogan was arrested in April with 268,000 rounds of ammunition. He says he took a wrong turn off a highway in El Paso and accidentally crossed into Mexico.
He says he tried to turn back but was directed to an inspection area and arrested.
