U.S. and Mexican authorities say that Mexican singer Kalimba was arrested Thursday at El Paso International Airport. Officials said that Kalimba was taken into custody because he lacked the proper documents to travel to the U.S.
Border Patrol spokesman Ramiro Cordero confirmed the arrest of Kalimba Thursday. The singer was sent back to Mexico at the Zaragosa bridge southeast of El Paso late Thursday night, Mexican officials told the El Paso Times.
It is expected Kalimba will face a judge later on today.
Francisco Alor, Attorney General of Quintana Roo made effective an order (issued by Judge Daniel Esteban Farah) to arrest Kalimba for the crime of rape and assault of a minor, and the promoter for corruption of minors.
On Wednesday morning, Alor said the two men were fugitives of justice from the moment the warrant was issued, and asked 32 police officers to search for Kalimba throughout the nation, an event that sprung a videogame on the internet called “Run Kalimba, Run” where the objective is to evade the 32 cops while jumping obstacles by clicking.
If convicted, Kalimba could be in prison for 25 years, to life.
