DENVER — A man has been arrested after being accused  of crashing a rental car near Denver International Airport, trespassing on to the airfield and stealing a truck.

According to Denver police, at about 12:30 Sunday morning, Richard Ruybal allegedly was involved in a crash driving a rental car.

Police were called to 9100 North Vandriver Street where Ruybal allegedly told police of his unusual journey.

After crashing his car outside the airfield, Ruybal climbed over the fence and walked across the airfield to a fire station, police said.

Ruybal allegedly stole the Nissan inside DIA‘s restricted airfield where airport operations crews eventually reached him. That’s where Denver police officers took him into custody.

The case is currently under investigation.
