OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Authorities say a man wearing only boxer shorts stole a pickup and drove it into a Southwest Airlines plane at an airport in Omaha, Nebraska.

Eppley Airfield police say the man was screaming that people were trying to kill him Thursday evening.

When officers approached, the man climbed a fence into the gate area, undressed and stole an airline pickup, which he drove into the plane as passengers for Denver were boarding.
