Marilyn Jean Hartman is apparently a flight risk.
The 62-year-old was arrested in the food court of San Francisco International Airport Tuesday morning less than a month after being banned from the premises for trying three times to sneak onto Hawaii-bound flights.
Hartman, of San Francisco, was not trying to get through the security checkpoint or board a flight Tuesday but did not have either a boarding pass in her name or adequate funds to purchase a ticket, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Hartman is prohibited from SFO unless she is legally ticketed to fly.
The Transportation Security Administration recognized Hartman and contacted the airport police bureau which notified the Sheriff’s Office, said spokeswoman Rebecca Rosenblatt.
Hartman was arrested by airport bureau officers and booked into the county jail on charges of violating a court order and trespassing.
On Feb. 27, Hartman pleaded no contest to two misdemeanor counts of commercial burglary in return for a 16-day jail sentence with credit for time served followed by 18 months probation.
Hartman made attempts to board a plane at SFO on Feb. 15, Feb. 18 and Feb. 20. The first time she got onboard but was discovered when the actual ticket holder arrived at the seat. The next two times, including once when she used a discarded boarding pass, she was stopped at the security gate.
After her arrest following the third attempt to sneak through security, Hartman reportedly told authorities she has cancer and wanted to go somewhere warm.
