CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The 47-year-old man who allegedly rammed the Naval Air Station (NAS) has been formally charged with destruction of government property and possession of a stolen firearm, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick.

 

A federal grand jury has returned the two-count indictment against Brian Dale Robinson, Beeville, today.

 

A criminal complaint was filed Oct. 7, after Robinson allegedly stole a truck and hit the denial barricade located at the North gate entrance of the NAS in Corpus Christi. The charges allege he was at a gas station in Beeville when he spotted a Dodge Ram 3500 pickup truck with the engine running. Robinson then allegedly entered the vehicle without permission and departed the area.

 

He approached the NAS and attempted to gain unauthorized access to the base, according to the charges. After he hit the barricade, the vehicle allegedly become inoperable. The charges allege Robinson exited the vehicle and left on foot with a handgun he had found inside and hid next to a dumpster.

 

Robinson allegedly had suicidal thoughts. However, he opted to drop the weapon so no one else would be hurt.

 

Following Robinson’s arrest, law enforcement located an HS Produkt, model XDM-9, 9mm pistol loaded with a full magazine.

 

If convicted of either of the charges, Robinson faces up to 10 years in federal prison and a possible $250,000 maximum fine.

 

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert D. Thorpe Jr. is prosecuting the case.
