Chris Cannella, 39, of North Babylon, told Port Authority police he was trying to give the pope his business card — even though Pope Francis had left New York City for Philadelphia several hours earlier — and that he wanted to talk to the world leaders to effect change, according to court documents, 1010 WINS’ Sonia Rincon reported.
Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow were in the two motorcades, CBS2’s Tony Aiello reported.
At around 6 p.m., Cannella, driving a Chevy Tahoe, allegedly followed one motorcade that also included NYPD, Secret Service and Port Authority police onto airport grounds. He was stopped at a security checkpoint and flashed a badge before being allowed through, police said. His SUV was similar to those driven by Secret Service when transporting VIPs.
