A driver at the border patrol checkpoint on I-35 fainted as agents inspect the tractor-trailer he was driving. The trailer the 41-year-old man from Cuba was driving was found to be full of almost two thousand pounds of marijuana. Agents at the checkpoint had referred the truck to secondary inspection where it was being x-rayed. As agents were questioning the driver, he fainted. 155 bundles of marijuana were found, worth an estimated $1.5-milion.
