He was released Friday, Dec 21 but because he was ill, Hammar and his father, who was driving back to South Florida with him, made an emergency stop along the way at a Louisiana hospital.

This good news/bad news comes via Miamo Herald:

Jon Hammar’s family got their Christmas wish.

The Marine veteran from Palmetto Bay who was detained for months, chained to his bed in a Mexican border prison for bringing his great-grandfather’s shotgun into the country, arrived home Monday, just in time for Christmas.

Miami Herald news partner CBS4 reported that Hammar arrived at his family’s Palmetto Bay home shortly before noon. Still recovering from an illness, Hammar didn’t talk to reporters.

“He’s inside,” his father told reporters, according to CBS4. “He can barely stand up right now. He’s really sick. Under doctor’s orders my wife took him and put him in bed.”

Hammar was arrested Aug. 13 when he and a fellow Marine veteran, who were headed to Costa Rica to surf, tried to cross into Mexico.

His mother told CBS 4 that he had caught “some sort of a stomach bug and bad chest cold.”
