FORT LAUDERDALE-HOLLYWOOD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, FLA. (WSVN) - An intruder who ran onto the runway at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport has been detained by Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies.

The intruder has been identified as 34-year-old Osman Aguire.

He was set to appear in court Wednesday morning, but refused to appear.

Aguire was ordered to post a $2,000 bond and cannot return to the airport.

The incident happened Tuesday afternoon when BSO Airport District deputies responded to the scene after receiving a call about a person who jumped a fence at FLL.

“Units be advised again, it’s going to be at 1800 SW 39th St., the airport fueling area,” said a dispatcher on Broadcastify.

An airport public information officer said that the incident happened just after 2:30 p.m. and that it was brief and was handled quickly by law enforcement, who responded immediately after receiving a 911 call about the intruder.

7Skyforce hovered over the scene Tuesday where the intruder appeared to be near Signature Flight Support on the west side of the airport.

Video provided by a YouTuber named Hori, who goes by the handle Chibi Wahoo and is known for his aviation videos was filming when the intruder surrendered to deputies.

“What are the officers doing? Why don’t you? Why don’t you? You know what I mean, why?” said Hori in the video.

Why won’t they just arrest him? Well, things would not go as easy as one would think.

The man makes a hobbling run for it, making it just a few feet farther down the tarmac.

“Oh, still running, now keep running,” said Hori.

The camera continued rolling.

“Why don’t you catch them?” wondered Hori. “You can’t do that.”

Aircraft traffic on the tarmac was brought to a standstill.

“Look at this, every plane supposed to be a departure. Every taxiing plane is stopped, complete stopped,” said Hori.

But it was not long before a full squad of BSO deputies arrived.

“Wow, another police car coming,” said Hori. “Oh, two police cars coming.”

It is unclear if the intruder will face any charges or why he was on the runway.

Air traffic resumed at the airport soon after the subject’s detention.

Not much known is known about the man, but deputies said he was unarmed.

“They’ve updated his description,” said a dispatcher on Broadcastify. “It’s actually going to be a black male, 20-30 years of age, he has spiked hair, black shirt, dark colored pants, doesn’t have any weapons.”

BSO said the person poses no further threat and the investigation is ongoing.

There’s no word from officials on who that person might be or what he told deputies when they took him into custody.
