WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Authorities say they are still trying to determine why a man drove his truck through a fence and onto a taxiway at a Wichita airport.
Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. David Mattingly says the 26-year-old man from Marlow, Okla., rammed his truck through a fence at Mid-Continent Airport early Sunday. He then drove onto an airport taxiway and approached a private jet before security personnel stopped him.
Mattingly says the man was talking to himself when he was stopped. A handgun was found in this truck.
He was arrested on charges of criminal trespass and criminal damage to property. He is currently being held at the jail on $15,000 bond.
Mattingly says investigators do not believe the event was connected to terrorism.
In December, an avionics technician was charged with trying to carry out a suicide bombing at Mid-Continent.
