The man was reportedly unarmed and posed no threat, police told CBS Los Angeles.

Another man was arrested earlier this week for walking in the vicinity of the runway at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Edonis Andrews, 22, is facing a criminal prosecution for trespassing on the airport property. He was arrested Tuesday around 2 p.m. when he was found on an internal road to be used by the airport employees, Fox 5 Atlanta reported.

At his hearing Wednesday, Andrews had to be placed in the shackles tighter and removed from the courtroom for refusing to sit still and be quiet. He was later brought back in and given a $5,000 bond.

“Despite the fact that an individual road, along the fence, our multi-layered security approach and response worked exactly the way it should and immediately soothes any threat,” the Atlanta Police Public Affairs Director Carlos Campos told Fox 5.

“Officers arrived on the scene within three minutes of the call and apprehended the suspect without incident.”
