New York State Woman Tried to Board Plane on Tarmac to Avoid Missing Flight
We all know those people who are somehow always late and end up holding up everything. But when one New York state woman was running late for an outgoing flight back in early 2022, she decided to take matters into her own hands.
WNYT says the woman was running late for her flight out of Albany International Airport. When she ended up missing boarding time, WNYT says she went out through the security gate and then tried to board the plane while it was parked on the tarmac.
Police say she was arrested and was charged with criminal trespass and is scheduled to appear in court next month.
