Nigerian man punches ICE officer trying to deport him

A Nigerian man, James Agbaeze, has been charged for assaulting an Immigration Customs Enforcement officer carrying out his deportation order at George Bush Intercontinental Airport.

The 53-year-old became combative on July 11, 2019, amid a verbal dispute over their use of handcuffs for an Atlanta-bound Delta flight.

According to Houston Chronicle, Agbaeze punched an officer in the face, knocked him in the ribs and tore off part of his fingernail.

The suspect went to the U.S. as a lawful resident in 2005, but lost his status following a 2013 conviction for aggravated theft.

He later appealed his 2017 deportation order, but on June 18, 2019, the 5th U.S. Circuit denied his final appeal.
