SUV driver arraigned for security breach at Green
WARWICK -- An allegedly intoxicated man who crashed his SUV through the gates at T.F. Green Airport yesterday, and briefly drove around on a perimeter road near the runways, was arraigned this morning in district court.
The police said today that the actions of Paul Sullivan, 43, of 2043 Elmwood Ave., Warwick, caused a security alert at the airport before he smashed through another fence and left the airport grounds.
He was arraigned on four counts of malicious damage to property and one count of trespassing in second division district court, in Warwick.
Sullivan allegedly drove his black 1998 Ford Explorer up to the gate at the long-term parking lot, on the airport grounds, around 11:45 a.m. yesterday, according to Capt. Stephen Cahill of the Airport Police. After waiting for several moments, Sullivan drove through the gate, breaking the yellow swing arm.
Then, Sullivan allegedly drove through the lot, crashing through two internal gates, and onto the perimeter road near the runways.
“Once he went through the second gate, it put him on the perimeter road of the airfield, which is technically a breach of the airfield,” Cahill said.
