andrew-tahmooressiAndrew Tahmooressi, the former U.S. Marine sergeant who spent 214 days in a Mexican jail after crossing the border with three loaded weapons (he says it was an accident), was ordered free by a judge in Tijuana on Friday.

Tahmooressi’s family released a statement to the Associated Press: “it is with an overwhelming and humbling feeling of relief that we confirm that Andrew was released today after spending 214 days in Mexican Jail.”

The judge apparently did not make a ruling in the charge against Tahmooressi, who was picked up with more than 400 rounds of ammunition, a pistol, a shotgun, and an assault rifle.
