A 27-year-old Florida man who served tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan with the U.S. Marine Corps is back on American soil after four months spent in a Mexican jail cell.
A Marine veteran jailed for months in Mexico after trying to carry a family heirloom shotgun across the border has been freed, U.S. officials and his lawyer said late Friday.
A former U.S. Marine who saw combat in both Iraq and Afghanistan was scheduled Friday for release from a prison in Mexico where he has been held without action since August on a questionable gun charge, according to an aide with the Mexican embassy.
A Republican congressman Thursday threatened Mexico with a travel boycott until a former Marine who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan is released from prison after his arrest by Mexican authorities for being in possession of an antique shotgun.
Former U.S. Marine Jon Hammar, who served combat tours in Afghanistan and Iraq, was arrested for illegally possessing an antique firearm even though he declared the gun to Mexican customs agents.
"Probably some down time," he said.
