WICHITA, Kansas – An Oklahoma man has been charged with ramming his truck through a fence at Mid-Continent Airport early Sunday.

The 26-year-old man identified as Mark Henry Rehme was charged with criminal damage to property and criminal trespass.

Police say Rehme drove onto an airport taxiway and approached a private jet before security personnel stopped him. A handgun was found in his truck.

His bond is $15,000, and his preliminary hearing is set for February 6.

Rehme is from Marlow, Oklahoma.

Investigators do not believe the event was connected to terrorism.
