MINNEAPOLIS – The Transportation Security Administration is investigating how a woman with a history of boarding airplanes without a ticket was able to fly, ticket-free, from Minnesota to Florida.
Marilyn Hartman was arrested Sunday in Jacksonville, Florida, and is scheduled to appear in court there on Tuesday.
Police say the 63-year-old Hartman told investigators she boarded the plane in Minneapolis-St. Paul without a ticket and flew to Jacksonville. She boarded a shuttle to an upscale hotel and the driver asked if she was a specific guest. Hartman said yes and used that name to check in to the hotel, where she was later arrested.
Hartman has made several attempts to sneak aboard flights elsewhere. She was jailed last August for taking a flight from San Jose to Los Angeles without a ticket.
