DALLAS -- A man accused of leading police on a chase that ended on a Dallas Love Field runway after the suspect crashed through a fence has been indicted on a federal charge.

The U.S. Attorney's office announced Wednesday that Michael Browne, 46, was indicted on one count of interfering with security screening personnel. The charge carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Officials say Browne fled in a stolen truck in August, eventually crashing the vehicle through an airport fence. Police rammed the pickup truck alongside a busy runway and pulled Browne from the cab.

According to online records, Browne remains in the Dallas County Jail on several charges related to the chase.

Trey Bunch, Browne's attorney, did not immediately respond to a message.
