SAN DIEGO (AP) - Authorities say a Marine recruit has been arrested after he allegedly dashed across a runway at a nearby San Diego airport.
U-T San Diego says a control tower employee at Lindbergh Field reported seeing a man running across a runway toward a gate shortly before 6:30 a.m. Thursday.
San Diego International Airport spokeswoman Diana Lucero says the man was seen getting into a janitor's van, apparently to hide, but police arrested him within minutes.
He had cuts and his uniform pants were snagged by razor wire topping the airport security fence. His name wasn't released.
Authorities say the man apparently bolted from the neighboring Marine Corps Recruit Depot. He was turned over to military police.
Lucero says airport operations weren't affected.
