DALLAS (AP) — A man has been charged with trespassing after allegedly driving on an airport taxiway and being arrested in a secure hangar at Dallas Love Field.
Dallas County jail records show 36-year-old Ruben Martinez Jimenez was being held Tuesday on $250,000 bond. Jimenez was booked early Monday several hours after being arrested for being at a general aviation site without permission.
A Dallas police report says Jimenez appeared to be in emotional distress Sunday night. He drove into the secure area when a guard opened a gate to inquire what the man wanted. Police say no passenger aircraft were threatened by the suspect's actions.
Defense attorney Jeffrey Boncek (BAHN'-sek) says he planned to meet with his client Tuesday and would seek lower bond on the misdemeanor charge.
