Man breaches Dallas Love Field security, yells "Jihad" during arrest

Posted: Updated:

A man was arrested Sunday night for breaching security at Dallas Love Field and yelling "Jihad" when he was arrested.

Around 6 p.m. on Sunday, 36-year-old Ruben Jimenez of Garland gained access to an area reserved for planes and fuel at Love Field.

The breach occurred on the general aviation side of the airport, away from the public terminals. Dallas police say no passenger aircraft were threatened.

Jimenez drove to one of the buildings and approached a gate. The gate operator lifted the gate to see what Jimenez needed – but he drove past the employee and onto the taxiway.

Jimenez was found inside one of the hangars, sitting against a wall.

Dallas police say he ignored officer demands to stand, instead sitting with his arms outstretched and staring into space.

When police insisted he stand, he reportedly pushed them away and took an aggressive stance with officers, yelling "Jihad."

The FBI and US Air Marshal Service were notified of the breach.

Jimenez was arrested on a misdemeanor trespassing charge and is being held on a $250,000 bail.
