Man arrested in airport security breach

        HEBRON — A security breach occurred early Sunday at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport when a drunken serviceman was found on a ramp outside the Delta terminal, authorities said.

        The airport was not shut down and no flights were delayed as a result of the incident, an airport spokeswoman said.

        Cristian Maltez, 28, of Hollywood, Fla., was arrested about 3:30 a.m. by airport police and charged with public alcohol intoxication, his citation report shows.

        Mr. Maltez was released about 10:30 a.m. Sunday from Boone County Jail.

        He was unable to explain to authorities how he wound up on the ramp, his arrest report says.

        He blew 0.150 on a breath test, authorities said.

        Kentucky's legal drinking limit for drivers is .08.

        Mr. Maltez has been in the National Guard five months and is stationed in Baltimore, said his wife, Anna Maltez, on Sunday.

        He had a layover in Cincinnati during a flight to Baltimore Saturday after a two-day visit home, she said.

        Dale Huber, deputy director of aviation, said he did not know who spotted Mr. Maltez on the ramp.

        He declined to discuss security at the airport, which was rated the worst of 38 major airports in federal security tests last month.
