Man Gets Past Security, Ends Up on Tarmac at Newark Airport on Christmas

A man has been arrested after authorities found him on the tarmac of Newark Liberty Airport.

Siyah Bryant, 24, of Jersey City was charged with trespassing around 4:45 a.m. Wednesday.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said Bryant did not turn up on anti-terrorism watch lists, so he was released with a summons. 

A phone number for him could not be located. 

It is not clear how he ended up on the tarmac. The Port Authority says there is no video of anyone climbing the fence around the airport.
