Florida Man Gets DUI Charge After Crash Near Air Force One

A Florida man is facing DUI charges after crashing into a fence at Palm Beach International Airport with Air Force One parked nearby.

Reports indicate that the early Sunday crash had the Secret Service investigating any potential threat to the Boeing 747 used by President Donald Trump. The president was at his Mar-a-Lago resort last weekend. No threat was identified.

The 24-year-old man, who investigators said fled the crash and reported a fake carjacking to authorities, was charged with DUI, filing a false crime report and leaving the scene of a crash.

Palm Beach County sheriff’s records show he was released on his own supervision.
