Assault on the Border
ABP's Mike Christie Faced Death

American Border Patrol -- June 6  
Mike Christie of American Border Patrol

    American Border Patrol's Mike Christie was nearly killed yesterday when a smuggler attempted to run him down on the border. It was only the quick thinking on the part of this former law enforcement officer that saved his life.
    This video shows how Christie came across the smuggler in a pick-up truck on ABP's ranch. As Christie moved to investigate, the truck turned around and headed straight for him, accelerating with its rear tires spinning. Trapped with nowhere to go, Christie pulled his sidearm and pointed it at the driver. At the last second, the driver turned toward Mexico and drove through the barbed wire fence at the border.
    There is no question that had Christie not been armed, he probably would not be alive today.
    The incident was reported to the U.S. Border Patrol and the Cochise County Sheriffs.
