DENVER, CO - Running late really sucks, but it's even worse if it lands you in jail.

That's what happened to this man after he missed his flight at the Denver International Airport in August.

Marc Rehmar had been charged with endangering public transportation and hindering transportation.

He thought he could stop the plane as it taxied away from the gate, rushing through and emergency exit door and onto the tarmac.

The reason for the runway rundown?  He said he missed his flight to his high school reunion, hey don't most of us avoid going to those?

Well, now Rehmar has accepted a plea deal, pleading guilty to a lesser charge of misdemeanor tampering, two years probation and 100 hours of public service.

Hey that's one way to get on the no fly list!
