A Vermont man is in jail after he allegedly sprayed a U.S. Border Patrol car with liquid manure after confronting agents about not arresting enough illegal alien farm workers.
Vermont man Mark Johnson, 56, told the Associated Press he saw a Border Patrol agent parked near a field where he was spraying fertilizer. He confronted the agent about why they were not doing more to arrest illegal aliens working on local farms, the AP reported. Johnson’s farm is located near the Canadian border.
Following the argument where he claimed the agent was rude to him, Johnson allegedly sprayed down the agent’s car with the liquid manure. Johnson now claims the alleged vandalism was an accident. He told the AP he “didn’t know the car was behind him when he turned on the spreader.”
