SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The Border Patrol says it has arrested one of San Diego's most dangerous smugglers of undocumented immigrants.

Martel Valencia-Cortez was arrested early Monday morning near Campo. Agents say when they found him leading a large group of immigrants across the border, Valencia-Cortez jumped into a nearby pond.

He reportedly tried to pull a Border Patrol agent underwater, but other agents were able to arrest him.

The agent who was pulled underwater was not seriously hurt.
