Two Border Patrol agents in Arizona are accused of forcing suspected drug smugglers to eat marijuana and strip down to their underwear before being told to flee into the desert.

A federal grand jury in Tucson indicted Dario Castillo, 23, and Ramon Zuniga, 29, with five counts of civil rights violations. Castillo faces an additional charge of tampering with a witness.

The indictment alleges that on November 12 of 2008, the two border agents forced four suspected drug smugglers from Mexico — who were in the country illegally and carrying marijuana — to eat the drug and remove their all their clothes except their underwear, the Arizona U.S. Attorney’s office said.

Instead of arresting them, the agents burned their personal belongings and ordered them to flee into the desert in 40-degree weather, the office said.

    I GOTTA SAY THAT THIS IS REPRESENTATIVE OF TRUE JUSTICE IN ACTION. INSTEAD OF ARRESTING THEM AND COSTING THE AMERICAN PUBLIC THOUSANDS, THEY SENT THEM HOME WITH A MESSAGE THAT WONT SOON BE FORGOTTEN.EVEN MORE TO THE POINT, THESE COPS WERE OF MEXICAN DECENT. GO BACK TO YOUR COUNTRY AND STAY THERE HOME BOYS, KEEP YOUR DRUGS, WE DONT WANT THEM. LOVE IT.
