DENVER — A 58-year-old man has been formally charged after he allegedly opened an emergency exit and tried to stop a plane that was departing at Denver International Airport earlier this month, the Denver District Attorney’s Office said Wednesday.

Marc Rehmar was charged with endangering public transportation and hindering transportation.

In a news release, the district attorney’s office said that on Aug. 6, Rehmar pushed open a secure emergency exit on the concourse and ran onto the ramp area and tried to stop a plane that was being pushed back from the gate.

Rehmar was attempting to stop the plane and catch the flight to Ohio for a high school reunion there, according to the district attorney’s office.

An alarm was triggered, and airport employees and Denver police immediately responded.

Rehmar has been released on a $10,000 bond. He is due in court Friday afternoon.
