LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Louisville man has been arrested for reportedly breaching a security checkpoint at UPS Worldport.

An arrest report states that early June 17 two Louisville Metro Police detectives working an off duty security detail were notified that a man had breached a security checkpoint. Security officers said the man passed several signs stating "No Trespassing Restricted Area."

When the detectives made contact with Aaron George Trammel, 27, they said he was under the influence of alcohol and smelled of alcoholic beverages.

Trammel is charged with criminal trespass and alcohol intoxication.

Mike Mangeot, a public relations spokesman for UPS Airlines, said there was not a security breach. According to Mangeot, Trammel was stopped at a security checkpoint before entering UPS and airport property.

As a FAA regulated property, only personnel with the proper credentials are allowed through the checkpoint to gain access into UPS Worldport.
