United Airlines Passenger Just Couldn’t Wait To Get Off Plane!
A United Airlines passenger was arrested after he opened the emergency exit of a jet and walked onto the wing as the plane taxied at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport and jumped onto the tarmac early Thursday, police said.
The plane was approaching the gate at O’Hare at about 4:32 a.m. after arriving from San Diego when police said the male passenger pulled the emergency exit, walked onto the wing of Flight 2478, then slid down onto the tarmac.
United said that crew members stopped the passenger outside the plane, which taxied safely to an airport gate to let the other passengers exit.
Police arrested 57-year-old Randy Davila of Escondido on the scene. He was charged with reckless conduct.
Airport operations were not affected by the incident and no injuries were reported.
