I laughed out loud about this story….The cops kept saying this guy invaded Dallas Love Field Airport and made a big nuisance of himself….Originally the cops swore this guy was yelling jihad made him do it and of course they just assumed he was just another Muslim wannabe terrorist doing what they are supposed to do….Evidently he says he was yelling JESUS made him do it….Not jihad…He was carrying a Bible by the way….You would think that might be the first clue.


'Jesus,' not 'Jihad': Man arrested at Love Field told police 'God had directed him' to airport

Ruben Martinez Jimenez, the man arrested by Dallas police for breaching a secure area of Dallas Love Field Sunday night, is now in federal custody, charged with entering an airport area in violation of security requirements.

But according to the affidavit filed today, Jimenez did not yell “Jihad!” as he struggled with officers. Contrary to what it says in Dallas police documents, he actually told officers, “In the name of Jesus, open the gate.” According to FBI Special Agent Rodney Sanchez, Jimenez told arresting officers that “he had a vision given to him by God … and that he believed God had directed him to Dallas Love Field.”

Court documents filed today recount the events leading up to Jimenez’s arrest on April 28, beginning with his attempts to enter Business Jet Center’s private-plane facility off Lemmon Avenue. According to the affidavit at around 6:20 p.m. he pulled up to the gate in his 2007 Chevy Tahoe and started punching buttons on the gate-access pad. One employee opened the gate to talk to Jimenez; another pulled up from the other side to keep him from gaining access to the airport side. That didn’t work: Jimenez, says the affidavit, took off toward the airport “at a high rate of speed,” narrowly missing the employee assigned to keep him out.

That’s when Jimenez got onto Taxiway Alpha, and a chase ensued. But the Business Jet workers couldn’t catch him — “because Jimenez was traveling at speeds estimated to be in excess of 100 miles per hour,” says the affidavit. They lost sight of him, but, eventually, Dallas police officers located him in an Associated Air hangar, where he dropped his keys, wallet and Bible, then “laid his body across the tires, placing his hands inside the tires.”

One officer tried to cuff him, but Jimenez broke loose; eventually, though, he was taken into custody, waived his Miranda rights and spoke with officers. At that point, says the affidavit, he admitted the whole thing, including the fact he yelled, “In the name of Jesus” three times. He also told police “he knew it was illegal to enter the airport the way he entered.”
