Dukes of Hazzard, Tijuana Style

San Diego, CA

Jovanni Mendoza, a Tijuana man who has had a ten year run moving people, drugs and god knows what else across the border, has been sentenced to 19 years in the hoosegow for 10 felony counts of smuggling.

He's been cited as being responsible for a series of high speed chases through San Diego county throughout his decade long career shuttling contraband into California. Early last year they finally snagged him, picking him up after he was caught going the wrong way on a freeway with 5 illegals and 700 pounds of marijuana in his truck. He crashed into a CHP car and somehow managed to limp away, only to be picked up the next week at a checkpoint on the same freeway.

Score one for Boss Hogg.

Some of my fondest hazy memories come from Tijuana.
