DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/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.

According to police, Jimenez approached a Fixed Base Operations building at the airport around 6:20 p.m. When the operator opened the vehicle gate to determine what was needed, Jimenez drove his vehicle past the employee and onto the taxiway. The employee immediately alerted the Dallas Police Department – Love Field Unit, and officers arrived within minutes.

The suspect was located in one of the hangars and was taken into custody.

A Dallas police report says Jimenez appeared to be in emotional distress Sunday night.

Police say no passenger aircraft were threatened by the suspect’s actions.

Defense attorney Jeffrey Boncek says he planned to meet with his client Tuesday and would seek lower bond on the misdemeanor charge.
