An off duty Border Patrol agent finds himself on the wrong side of the law.

Laredo Police say they were called out to a disturbance at a home on Espada Drive on Sunday morning.

When officers arrived, a woman told police an argument with Hector Guerrero had turned physical and he tried to strangle her.

Guerrero was identified as a Border Patrol agent who was off duty at the time of the assault.

Border Patrol issued a statement saying, “As a matter of policy, U.S. Customs and Border Protection does not comment on on-going investigations so as not to impede the work of law enforcement. CBP stresses honor and integrity in every aspect of our mission".
