A Mexican court has authorized a re-enactment of events leading to the arrest of a Dallas trucker who says he made a wrong turn into Mexico with a truckload of ammunition.

Jabin Bogan's attorney says experts and prosecutors will attend the Thursday re-enactment of the moment when Bogan tried to make a U-turn at a border crossing bridge at Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Bogan has been jailed since the April 17 incident in which he was found with 268,000 bullets inside his 18-wheeler.

Bogan has claimed his GPS malfunctioned. Mexican customs officials testified he was trying to turn around and, when asked, showed paperwork showing the ammunition was destined for a wholesaler in Arizona.

Prosecutors alleged Bogan concealed the cargo and charged him with smuggling military ammunition.
