LITTLE ROCK, AR – TSA officials detained a man who they say attempted to force his way onto a plane at the Little Rock National Airport Tuesday morning.
According to reports, a man pushed open an alarmed emergency door onto an airfield. The man was stopped by an airline employee, brought back into the terminal and instructed to wait for police. Instead, the man boarded a plane, Delta Airlines Flight 1614, heading to Atlanta. The man, along with two other passengers, were removed from the flight, interviewed by authorities and released.
Before the plane took off, all other passengers on the flight along with their carry on luggage were re-screened before being cleared for departure.
