Cops: Drunk Woman Drives Through Fence Onto Airport Runway

An intoxicated woman drove through a fence and onto a small airport runway in Tampa, causing more than $12,000 in damages, authorities said.

Kathy Lee Wilcox, 51, drove her car through a 6-foot fence at the entrance to Vandenberg Airport Monday, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

Authorities said he drove up to the airport's closed gate, stopped her car and then drove through the fence, which is marked with a "No Trespassing" sign.

Wilcox then drove onto the runway, and airport officials boxed her vehicle in and called the sheriff's office. No airplanes were damaged.

Wilcox was charged with driving under the influence involving property damage. It was not immediately clear if she had an attorney.
