Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi told Greta Van Susteren tonight that he had been beaten and slapped by Mexican authorities. He also said he was stripped and chained to a bed by the guards and slapped across the face several times.
Tahmooressi acknowledged at the border he had registered weapons and that he had no intention of even entering Mexico.
Tahmooressi has been held in a Mexican prison for weeks on gun charges. He mistakenly crossed into Mexico with guns registered in the U.S.. His best friend compared his plight to that of a prisoner of war. On Thursday Andrew told Greta:
“Indirectly they were telling me they were threatening to rape me to kill me… THey stripped me of my clothes and then they handcuffed me my hands to a bedpost and my feet to a bedpost.”
