Man Shot, Held After Driving Across Runways

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A man drove his truck across two active runways at the Palm Springs International Airport, broke a lock on a plane door and tried to run over an officer before police were able to arrest him early Sunday.

Even after the man crashed his truck and had been shot by police, he still refused to surrender until a police dog subdued him, police spokesman Sgt. John Booth said.

The suspect, identified as Michael Broderick, was taken to Desert Regional Medical Center, where he was treated for gunshot wounds. His injuries were not life-threatening, Booth said.

Broderick was booked on suspicion of attempting to kill an officer.
