Man arrested after breaching security at Illinois airport
Several weekend flights were delayed or canceled at an Illinois airport after a man tried to use a stolen vehicle to ram the main terminal and breached security, US media reports.
The Gen. Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport in central Illinois says in a news release that the man was taken into custody and to a hospital after the incident early Saturday. The airport was closed for a few hours.
Airport officials say the man used the car to try to ram the building but was unsuccessful. He then forced his way inside and spent several minutes in a secured area before trying to break into a police vehicle.
