Man arrested for chasing plane moons crowd outside court

The man was late for a flight from Dublin to Amsterdam and had to be pinned down by Ryanair staff before the airport's police arrived at the scene.

A man has been arrested after he escaped onto the tarmac at Dublin Airport and attempted to chase the Ryanair flight he had missed.

Police officers stopped him from entering the plane that was taxiing and arrested him.

Moments earlier the man in his 20s, who is thought to be Irish, was inside banging on the window of the terminal asking ground crew to hold the plane.

The flight took off 90 minutes later than scheduled.

Charged later that day with criminal damage to a door lock in Dublin District Court, Kehoe was released on bail.

A ground crew member who witnessed the freakish incident said Kehoe "just ran from the building towards the plane".

Bill Cosby gets prison warning from O.J. Simpson
Comedian Bill Cosby is taken into custody in handcuffs at Montgomery County Courthouse on September 25, 2018, in Norristown, Penn. Cosby's legal team; however, argued that he should be sent home on house arrest because he is old, frail and legally blind.

Declan Harvey, a BBC reporter, witnessed the incident and tweeted pictures of police cars arriving at the scene.

An airport spokeswoman said: "He was banging on the window to try and get the aircraft to wait and he then broke through a door and made his way on to the apron, trying to flag the aircraft down".

Ryanair said in a statement: "Police at Dublin Airport detained an individual who breached security at the boarding gate, which had already closed".

The man has been taken to a nearby police station for questioning, PA reported.

The man reportedly became agitated when he was told by staff at the boarding gate that he would not be able to board the flight.

An attempt to ban him from Dublin Airport was successfully resisted by his solicitor.

"This is now a matter for local police", he added.
