Student Who Breached Airport Security for Kiss Gets Federal Fine
The amount of the civil penalty was not disclosed.
The incident occurred January 3, when Haisong Jiang ducked under a rope at the airport and entered a restricted area because he wanted one more opportunity to lock lips with his girlfriend, who was heading to California.
As a result of the security breach, a terminal at Newark was shut down for six hours.
Jiang, who is from China, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge in March, and was also fined $658 by local authorities, in addition to having to serve 100 hours of community service.
According to the Transportation Security Administration, the federal fine ends the case against the Rutgers University student.
