GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) - A man blamed for a security breach at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport allegedly slipped onto a jet to try to stop his girlfriend from leaving.
A DFW airport police report released Tuesday says Damarias Cockerham of Garland faces a criminal trespass charge. The report says Cockerham on Sunday afternoon "walked" through a checkpoint without identification or a ticket.
Police say Cockerham ran onto American Airlines Flight 1013, boarding for Guatemala City, Guatemala. Police say Cockerham appeared upset, then got off the plane and was arrested. Police took Cockerham's keys, then located his car parked curbside at Terminal D.
The Transportation Security Administration is reviewing the breach and has added more barriers to DFW screening areas.
Officials didn't release custody information on Cockerham or details on the woman he was seeking.
