The man, a 41-year-old African-American male, ignored two separate warnings before getting onto the runway. “This is the second time in four months that someone has broken through a restricted area at MIA.” The first time was by a 34-year-old white male who was shot by police.
He told police he couldn’t read and didn’t know he wasn’t supposed to be on the runway at Miami International Airport, according to an arrest report.
But police say Gregory Burnes, 41, ignored warnings from two different witnesses and made his way onto Runway 9 anyway.
On Tuesday, a day after Burnes was caught running on the runway, police said he was charged with illegally being in a restricted area. He was being held in jail on a $1,500 bond.
