An off-duty U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer was arrested for carrying a firearm at the “Justice for J6” rally in Washington, DC, on Saturday, according to reports.
CBS News said the U.S. Attorney’s office in DC will not prosecute the CBP officer and that the case has been referred to the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general. In a Monday statement, the CBP confirmed that one of its employees was arrested, but didn’t acknowledge that the detainment occurred at the “Justice for J6” event.

CBP will continue to support any criminal or administrative investigation of alleged misconduct by any of our personnel, both on or off duty.”
