CLEVELAND — Bond has been set for $2,500 for the man accused of plowing through a fence and onto the airfield at Cleveland Hopkins Airport.

Daniel Allen appeared in court Tuesday morning where he waived his right to a preliminary hearing.

According to a report provided to the FOX 8 I-Team, Allen rammed through an airport fence at the end of a side road near the NASA Glenn Complex around 2:52 a.m. Sunday.  A call to police was not made until 4:15 a.m.

Allen was arrested at the scene and police believe he’d been drinking.

Allen was charged with OVI and vandalism.

Police say he told them he had been on a party bus, and when he got back to his car, he circled the lot looking for the exit yet couldn’t find it.

Firefighters found the car crashed into a snow bank smoking.

The case has been bound over to the Cuyahoga County grand jury. Allen is currently being held at the Cuyahoga County jail.
