Like something out of the movies, the son of a South Texas sheriff has found himself on the other side of the law.

Eusevio Salinas III, 26, was driving in Dimmit County, Texas, when he was pulled over for a “routine traffic stop,” according to KENS5. After police approached the vehicle, they became suspicious and called for back up from Border Patrol. A quick sweep with a K-9 unit uncovered 14 undocumented immigrants crammed into a trailer attached to Salinas’ truck.

Salinas is the son of Zavala County‘s sheriff, who shares the same name. Zavala County is just an hour drive from Dimmit County. Multiple attempts by KENS5 to speak with the sheriff about his son’s arrest were denied. A reporter for the news station even went to the sheriff’s office to seek a comment, only to be told he was not there.

According to FOX29 San Antonio, it is not uncommon for police to chase and find undocumented immigrants in cars so close to the border. Smuggling undocumented people across the border to the U.S. has become a lucrative business, with smugglers making about $4,500 for each person they successfully bring into the country, according to Ruth Censieros, a chief deputy for Dimmit County.

“We see this everyday. It’s an everyday thing,” Ceniseros told FOX 29 San Antonio about the increasing frequency of undocumented smuggling. “We’ve encountered deceased immigrants plenty of times and it doesn’t make it any easier.”

“We have lawyers, we have construction workers.”

Everyone has their way of letting off steam after a long day at work. Some people binge on Netflix, others hit the gym, and some hunt Pokemon. VICE visited a place in the Bronx where everyone from lawyers to construction workers slip on some tights and throw each other around while strangers watch, enthralled by their every move. Daro’s Extreme Fitness, a gym housed in an unassuming brick building, doubles as the home for the Bronx Wrestling Federation. Founded by Frank Segundo, a Dominican who fell in love with Mexican lucha libre, the BWF has become a neighborhood institution where amateurs can get a taste of pro wrestling and where fans see it go down from up close. By day, Segundo is the founder of BWF, by night, he wrestles as Bronco Internacional. VICE took a tour of the BWF from John Torres, a budding filmmaker who also wrestles to carry on the tradition his father, “Lighting” Johnny Torres, passed along to him in his youth.
