PHOENIX (FOX 10) -- Court documents are providing more details on an incident last Wednesday where a man jumped onto the tarmac at Sky Harbor.
The incident happened just five days after a man sprayed passengers with a liquid from a spray bottle, and then jumped out of an American Airlines plane via a service door. This incident happened at around 11:30 p.m. on April 17 at Sky Harbor's Terminal 4. The man, identified as 45-year-old Zidong Wang, was at Gate A22 on the secure side of Sky Harbor when he decided to push through an alarmed door, and exited onto the tarmac. The man then walked across two active taxiways and proceeded to walk around for about 30 minutes before he was contacted by employees.
Wang, who is a Chinese citizen, said he just "wanted some fresh air", according to court documents. He is being charged with criminal trespassing involving a critical public service facility, which is a class five felony. He has been released on his own recognizance, and he is allowed to travel from Arizona to New York, but must return to Phoenix no later than May 1. Wang is scheduled to have a status conference on May 2.
