TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A day labor organizer in Tucson was pepper sprayed and arrested after he laid underneath a U.S. Border Patrol vehicle in an unsuccessful bid to thwart the arrest of another man.

Tucson police spokesman Fabian Pacheco said day labor organizer Raul Alcaraz Ochoa was pepper sprayed Sunday after he refused to come out from underneath the Border Patrol vehicle.

Pacheco said Ochoa was protesting the arrest of a driver whose vehicle was pulled over after officers got a call from someone reported two children being put into a car trunk.  The driver of the vehicle was in the country illegally.

Police were concerned about the possibility of child abduction.

Immigrant rights supporters held a rally outside a Tucson police building to protest the arrests of Ochoa and the driver.
