    A U.S Border Patrol agent finds himself on the other side of the law, after a tense scene in North Laredo where at least a dozen police officers were on the search for him last night.

    This home video was sent to our newsroom. Officers say at least a dozen police units set up a perimeter on the 3100 block of Guerra street, in North Laredo. All in search of 'off duty' agent Rene Joel Valenciano. Thats where police say they found the 26 year old locked inside a home. According to reports Valenciano hit his wife in the face with his service weapon after she tried to break up a fight between him and another person. And at some point, he even allegedly pointed the gun at his victim. The situation worsened when it was reportedly found that the agent escaped through a back door. Unfortunately, when they moved in they were forced to fire a shot at a pitbull that attacked an officer. Later they caught Valenciano wandering the neighborhood. But the allegations continue with the border patrol agent allegedly struggling with officers when he tryed to snatch a gun from one of their holsters. It's believed Valenciano had been drinking when this incident started. Now he's facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, attempting to take a weapon from a peace officer, and resisting arrest and transport.

    The U.S. Border Patrol has not provided a comment at this time.
