Man in Dallas arrested, abandons car, boards plane without a ticket!

A man was taken into custody after he was able to bypass security and board a plane without a ticket Sunday at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

As Reported by WFAA:

The 26-year-old male, who hasn’t been identified by name, parked his car curbside and somehow was able to get through a TSA checkpoint and board the flight without a ticket, said Cynthia Vega, a D/FW Airport spokeswoman, in a statement released early Monday morning.

Vega said investigators searched the car and found no threat.

The man was charged with criminal trespassing and a TSA investigation into the incident is underway.

The TSA released this statement about the incident Monday:

“TSA is reviewing the incident and is working closely with the airport, local law enforcement and stakeholders to ensure that all of our checkpoints at DFW reflect optimal security configurations. Immediately following this incident, TSA made adjustments to the DFW screening area and has added more barriers, and is working to identify other long-term solutions that may require physical adjustments to the area. As always, TSA continually evaluates checkpoint configurations and passenger flows at all our airports to ensure physical security.”
