Man Who Caused Newark Airport Chaos Arrested & Fined

A New Jersey man who allegedly slipped past Newark Airport security last weekend is facing a charged of defiant trespassing and a $500 fine.

Haisong Jiang, 28, of Piscataway N.J.,was arrested at his home at 7:30 p.m. Friday, questioned at the airport and let go shortly after midnight today.

Investigators say a surveillance tape shows a Transportation Security Administration agent leaving his post, then Jiang ducking a rope past the security checkpoint to meet a woman last Sunday night.

The move caused Newark’s Terminal C to be shut down for six hours as passengers were rescreened.

New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg praised police for tracking down Jiang, but called the trespassing charge “a slap on the wrist.”

Meanwhile, the TSA guard charged with securing the area is on administrative leave and faces possible disciplinary action.

Published reports identified the guard seen on the tape as Ruben Hernandez of Newark.

Yet union officials who represent the guard said Friday that the guard is a “model employee” and they were investigating reports he was called away to investigate a disturbance.
