Ground worker at Twin Cities airport accused of driving drunk on tarmac

MINNEAPOLIS — A ground worker at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport has been arrested for allegedly driving drunk on the tarmac.

Fifty-four-year-old John Joseph Korab, of Inver Grove Heights, is charged with four counts including drunken driving and use of alcohol while operating a vehicle in the airport's operations area.

The police report says Korab was driving a truck for the ground services company Servisair when he failed to yield to an AirTran jet that was being pushed back from the gate Thursday night. It says his blood alcohol level was 0.21 percent, more than double Minnesota's legal limit for driving.

Korab did not immediately return a phone call Monday seeking comment. A man at Servisair who gave his name only as Kevin says Korab no longer works there.
