Man Faces Federal Charge In Dallas Airport Case

DALLAS - A man arrested at a Dallas Love Field hangar after allegedly driving more than 100 mph on an airport taxiway now faces a federal unauthorized entry charge.

A magistrate Wednesday afternoon ordered 36-year-old Ruben Jimenez of Garland to remain in federal custody. An attorney for Jimenez did not immediately comment Thursday.

Jimenez was arrested Sunday night on trespassing charges. Federal prosecutors later charged Jimenez with entering aircraft or an airport area in violation of security requirements.

Investigators say Jimenez told police that God directed him to Love Field and he repeatedly said "in the name of Jesus." He allegedly drove his SUV into a general aviation area when an employee opened a security gate to see what Jimenez wanted.
