Mexico Arrests 6 U.S. Border Agents

From Times Wire and Staff Reports

An Immigration and Naturalization Service spokesman Saturday acknowledged that six off-duty U. S. Border Patrol officers had been briefly detained Friday in the Mexican border city of Mexicali after a disagreement with a citizen there.

Notimex, the Mexican government news agency, reported the six unidentified officers were arrested shortly before dawn Friday after they allegedly beat up a lawyer who had complained about their drunken and disorderly conduct.

Duke Austin, an INS spokesman in Washington, said he did not know whether any charges had been filed in the incident.
