A 39-year-old man is charged with throwing a lit Molotov cocktail at inspectors at the U.S.-Mexico border crossing in San Diego.
Ricardo Martinez is charged with assaulting a federal officer Wednesday at the San Ysidro (ee-SEE-droh) port of entry, the nation’s busiest. Despite a large fireball, no injuries or property damage is reported.
Authorities say the incendiary device landed about a yard south of a vehicle inspection booth near four officers and motorists.
