Woman who tries to sneak on planes arrested twice in 2 days

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

CHICAGO » A woman who has repeatedly tried to sneak aboard airplanes has been arrested in Chicago twice in as many days, the latest incident while trying to get through security without a ticket at O’Hare International Airport.

Chicago police said 63-year-old Marilyn Hartman did not have a ticket on Saturday afternoon when she was detained at airport security. She was charged with criminal trespassing and with violating her bond on previous charges.

The incident was only one day after her arrest at Midway International Airport where she had a valid ticket but caused a disturbance on board the plane and was escorted off. Chicago police spokesman Thomas Sweeney says Hartman was charged Friday with misdemeanor reckless conduct.

Hartman had just been released from jail on Thursday, telling reporters she felt "free as a bird." She’d been arrested after trying to get past security at O’Hare and Midway airports in April and May. She pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges.

In recent years, she’s tried numerous times to board without a ticket, succeeding at least once.
