Earlier this year an American Airlines employee drove a van off a parking structure in Miami but didn’t go anywhere near the runways. A year earlier a man on a bicycle stole a van, drove to the airport, and jumped onto a plane’s wing in order to try to steal it.
Another man stole an SUV, used it to breach an airport perimeter, and entered an empty plane in order to escape from the zombie apocalypse.

Still someone else stole a pizza delivery truck because he needed a ride to the airport. He wasn’t charged, because we’ve all been there, right? There was no Uber in town, it’s not a felony since he didn’t intend to keep the car, and police didn’t want to be bothered with a misdemeanor.
Pizza Hut didn’t owe the offender a refund, since their vehicle delivered him to the airport within half an hour.
So it doesn’t even surprise me anymore when a man crashed a car through the airport and drove onto the runway in Lyon, France.

The man is then seen almost crashing into an embankment and then fleeing on foot as he is eventually swarmed by police, despite his best efforts to outrun them.
Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes police proceeded to arrest the man but have not yet disclosed what he is being charged with. Nobody was reported injured at the scene.
