The son of a famous Mexican singer, Pepe Aguilar, was arrested on the border between Mexico and the United States earlier this month accused of trying to illegally pass four undocumented people in the trunk of a vehicle.

Jose Emiliano Aguilar, a 24-year-old U.S. citizen, was arrested on March 14 at at the San Ysidro port of San Diego, when his white Chrysler 200 car was stopped for an inspection, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Jose Emiliano Aguilar is the son of Pepe Aguilar, 48, one of the country's best-known Mexican voices, winner of four Grammy Awards and four Latin Grammy Awards. He is also the grandson of one of the legends of Mexican cinema and ranchera music, Antonio Aguilar, who died in 2007.

So far, the family Aguilar has not pronounced on the arrest of José Emiliano Aguilar.
