A Georgia man is accused of causing about $15,000 in damage to a Delta Airlines ticket kiosk at the Bismarck airport after he became frustrated with it.
Russell Wright of Atlanta is charged with felony criminal mischief.
Bismarck Police Sgt. Dwight Offerman said the 40-year-old Wright is accused of striking and breaking the kiosk shortly before 5 a.m., Thursday. Offerman said Wright arrived 30 minutes before to his flight and was frustrated when the kiosk failed to work.
Police said the screen on the kiosk was shattered.
Authorities say Wright has been barred from contact with the airport terminal and with Delta Airlines.
