DEL MAR — Two off duty U.S. Border Patrol agents were arrested late last month in Del Mar after they created a disturbance during a Cirque Du Soleil performance, according to the Sheriff's Department.
Agent Kallie Helwig, 24, was arrested for misdemeanor battery on a woman who complained about the two agents' behavior inside the circus, said Lt. Kenn Nelson of the Encinitas station. The other agent, Gerald Torello, 35, was arrested for public intoxication, according to the Sheriff's Department.
People in the audience reported seeing the two agents involved in an apparent sex act during the circus performance, Nelson said. Some of the people asked them to stop.
