New York Times: Consequences of an Airport Kiss

New York Times: Consequences of an Airport Kiss

“At that moment, I’m very excited with my girlfriend, and I didn’t think too much,” Mr. Jiang, 28, said Tuesday in his first interview since causing the six-hour shutdown at the airport and the five-day manhunt that followed. “I didn’t mean to cause trouble at the airport.”

On Tuesday, he pleaded guilty in Newark Municipal Court to the charge of defiant trespass, and besides the community service, he must pay a $500 fine and $158 in costs and fees.

I may have felt differently if I was stuck at that airport, but I’m glad this guy wasn’t given jail time or worse — he was hardly a national security threat.
