Man believed to have caused airport security breach arrested

A man believed to have caused a security breach that resulted in major delays Sunday at Newark Liberty Airport has been arrested and will be charged with defiant trespassing.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says 28-year-old Haisong Jiang of Piscataway was taken into custody at 7:30pm Friday at his home.

On a surveillance video released Thursday by the Transportation Security Administration and the Port Authority, a man wearing a light-colored jacket ducks under a rope barrier and enters the secure area unseen by a security guard.

The guard is on administrative leave and facing possible disciplinary action.
