Posted on

A man breached security Friday night at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, bolted through a checkpoint and onto a plane, an airport spokesman said. The man was chased by police and TSA officers, and was captured on a plane, said a spokesman for Sea-Tac Airport.

The incident started about 11:30 pm ET, when the man sprinted by the security checkpoint at concourse; he bolted out of a door and made his way out on the tarmac, he broke a window, by punching it, and was able to get into an empty American Airlines plane.

The man, described as in his 20s, was apprehended on the plane.

Nobody was hurt and no flights were delayed. The suspect will be taken to jail, and it’s suspected that the incident was caused by the use of drugs, the spokesman said.
