The teenager who jumped onto the wing of an airplane at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport — while dressed in only his underwear — has been charged with a host of offenses.
Jhyrin Jones, 19, was charged with criminal trespassing, public indecency, material damage and obstruction of law enforcement after he scaled a 12-foot fence and ran out onto the tarmac shortly before 5 a.m. on Tuesday afternoon, Reuters is reporting.

After scaling the fence, Jones jumped onto the wing of a Delta plane that had just touched down at Hartsfield-Jackson from Miami, and attempted to open the aircraft's emergency door from the outside.
Initial reports indicated that passengers aboard the plane believed Jones had been a passenger aboard the aircraft, who jumped out upon landing.

“People were crying," said passenger Tim James, who also claimed that Jones actually got the emergency door open at one point. "My first thoughts were he had jumped off of the plane, so I was more concerned he had something else on the plane that needed to be taken off. It was scary.”
In video recorded by other passengers, the man appeared only wearing underwear and carrying his clothes. A flight attendant added that, at one point, he put what seemed to be an ID in his mouth before he "ripped it apart" and threw it away, according to Reuters.
In a tweet, the airport said operations were not been impacted by the incident.
