WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — An Oklahoma man who rammed his pickup truck through a security gate at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport has pleaded guilty to criminal trespass and criminal damage to property.

Twenty-six-year-old Mark Rehme of Marlow, Oklahoma, will be sentenced June 9. He entered his plea Monday before his jury trial was to begin.

Sedgwick County prosecutors say Rehme was arrested Jan. 19 after he drove his Ford F-150 through a fenced area and walked toward a small, private plane.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1o9kumq ) authorities said Rehme was waving some papers and talking to himself when he was arrested. A handgun and knives were found in his truck. No one was injured.

The motive for Rehme’s actions has never been publicized.
