Last Thursday evening, Rodney McDade sought to reenter the U.S. from Mexico via a pedestrian lane at the Calexico port of entry in southern California.
The 52-year-old McDade, who declared that he was not carrying anything into his home country, was directed to a "secondary inspection area" after a U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent determined that he had an extensive criminal record (including busts for drug possession).
At the secondary office, a CBP officer conducted a pat-down search of McDade, which "resulted in negative results," according to a court filing. But agents were not done with him.
