The 27-year-old man who was jailed in Mexico in April after making a wrong turn into the country carrying a shipment of ammunition is back in the United States.
The El Paso Times is reporting Jabin Bogan on Friday crossed over the very bridge he found himself trapped on after the GPS in his 18-wheeler malfunctioned on April 18. Bogan was taking a shipment of 268,000 rounds of ammo to a buyer in Arizona. His attorney said he had legal paperwork proving the cargo’s validity and simply made a wrong turn.
Bogan was arrested on the Bridge of the Americas when he tried, unsuccessfully, to reverse and back out of a lane reserved for passenger cars. Security footage captured at the border depicts Bogan blocking several lanes of southbound traffic for more than half an hour while trying to maneuver his trailer back to the U.S.
