Man Drives Onto Duluth Airport Runway
Duluth, MN (Learfield News Service) - A 36-year-old man is charged with multiple crimes after leading police on a chase at the Duluth International Airport.
Officers say Christopher Dunker crashed his vehicle through a gate Friday morning and drove onto an active runway as a commercial flight was boarding.
Dunker refused to pull over for patrol cars and Hermantown police eventually used their vehicle to push Dunker's vehicle off the road and take him into custody.
Dunker is charged with damage to property, fleeing police and driving under the influence. He may also face federal charges.
He was interviewed by the FBI but agents do not believe the incident was "terrorism" related in any way.
