Charges filed against man who drove car onto Philadelphia International Airport runway

    Kenneth Mazik is learning the consequences of driving through a security gate and onto an airport runway.

    The 24-year-old got national attention last week when he nearly got in the way of a plane at Philadelphia International Airport.
    No doubt he’ll also get national attention for the charges he’s facing — simple assault, aggravated assault, resisting arrest, fleeing police, reckless endangerment of another person, criminal mischief, defiant trespass, disorderly conduct and other related charges.

    Mazik is being held on $1 million bail and will next be in court March 12.
