El Paso Border Patrol Chief’s husband arrested on Charges of sexual assault



EL PASO — A former U.S. Border Patrol Agent has been arrested and indicted on three counts of felony sexual assault and one felony count of kidnapping.

Gus Zamora, husband of the current U.S. Border Patrol interim Chief Gloria Chavez, was the assistant chief of the Border Patrol sector in Yuma, Arizona when the alleged assault occurred, according to the New York Times.

Zamora allegedly committed the assault while traveling on a work trip from Yuma to Tucson earlier this year.

The victim, a young border patrol agent who reportedly saw Zamora as a mentor, says he got her drunk on tequila shots while at dinner then took her to his hotel room.

Once in the hotel room Zamora reportedly attacked the victim and sexually assaulted her.

Sources at KVIA say Zamora claims the sex was consensual and that the victim initiated it.
