Serial stowaway arrested again at Chicago’s O’Hare airport

CHICAGO (AP) — A woman with a history of sneaking aboard airplanes has been arrested again at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. Chicago police say 64-year-old Marilyn Hartman was arrested Wednesday at an airport bus shuttle center. She’s scheduled to appear Thursday in bond court.  

Marilyn HartmanHartman has tried numerous times in recent years to board planes without a ticket, succeeding at least once by flying from San Jose, California, to Los Angeles in August 2014. Hartman was arrested twice in two days last summer at O’Hare and Chicago’s Midway International Airport. She also has airport-related arrests in Arizona.

Hartman was released on probation to a Chicago nursing home in December, and ordered to avoid airports and Chicago’s Union Station. Hartman is now charged with felony probation violation and misdemeanor criminal trespass.

    1. It’s a sad gig, probably the only human physical contact she experiences. So she “gets off on it”! I love it. “The Serial Stowaway strikes again, almost!”

  1. So she didn’t actually try to get on a plane….she was just hanging out at the airport bus shuttle center, minding her own business.
    I’m sure the TSA and DHS went into full blown high terrorist red alert when they found her trying to get a free bus ride. Thank God they caught her…I feel so much safer now.

      1. Well, I’m sure she thought that she could blow up more people at the airport bus shuttle center than she could by blowing up a plane. Damn terrorists and their inert explosives.
        She probably had her inert explosives cleverly disguised as a chicken salad sandwich. (Shudder!) That’s just insidious and evil.
