Nogales man gets 40 months in agent assault case

PHOENIX (AP) -

A 40-year-old Nogales man has been sentenced to more than three years in prison on convictions of assaulting a federal officer.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for Arizona says Daniel Alberto Silva was sentenced to 40 months in federal prison after pleading guilty in the case.

Authorities say two U.S. Border Patrol agents were trying to arrest Silva in August in connection with a human smuggling investigation.

They say Silva fled then pointed a gun at the agents who were still in their patrol vehicle chasing him. Once Silva was arrested, authorities found a handgun nearby, along with ammunition in Silva's pocket.

The Border Patrol conducted the investigation.
