I-75 southbound closed in Wesley Chapel

- Interstate 75's southbound lanes were shut down briefly in Pasco County due to what Florida Highway Patrol troopers are calling "police activity."

The scene was at mile marker 277, which is just north of the exit for State Road 54/56 in Wesley Chapel.

Pasco County deputies say the police activity involves the U.S. Border Patrol, but there were no other details available.

The lanes have since opened back up to traffic.
