A United Airlines pilot “hit his breaking point” and took out his frustrations on a parking lot arm with an ax near Denver International Airport, authorities said Friday.

Kenneth Henderson Jones, 63, was accused of criminal mischief stemming from the Aug. 2 incident, according to an incident report by the Adam County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were dispatched about 2 p.m. to a parking lot in the shadows of DIA.

Parking lot employee Rick Stephens, 65, confronted Jones, who “refused to drop” the ax, officials said. Both men were uninjured “during the confrontation” that ended with the pilot losing possession of the potential weapon, the sheriff’s report said.

“Kenneth ran across the street and behind a building and stayed in a field until he was contacted by” Denver police, the report added.
