An Oklahoma man who rammed his truck through a security gate at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport and was found waving documents at a small plane has pleaded guilty to criminal trespass and criminal damage to property.

Mark H. Rehme, 26, will be sentenced July 9 by Sedgwick County District Court Judge William Woolley. His plea came Monday before his jury trial was set to begin, according to a news release from Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett's office.

Rehme was arrested Jan. 19 after he drove his Ford F-150 through a fenced-in area near the 6800 block of West K-42 and approached a small, private plane, papers in hand. Authorities at the time said he was “talking to himself” when he was detained. A handgun and knives were found in his truck, authorities have said.

Rehme is a Marlow, Okla., resident. He remained in custody Tuesday at Sedgwick County Jail, an online roster of inmates shows. He is being held on $15,000 bond.
