Marilyn Hartman arrested at Phoenix Sky Harbor after series of airport incidents

A 62-year-old woman was arrested at Phoenix Sky Harbor Tuesday morning after a series of run-ins at different airports.

Marilyn Hartman was reportedly arrested near the baggage claim area in terminal 4, Phoenix Police Sgt. Trent Crump.

Hartman was seen on August 20 in Sky Harbor airport trying to get past security without a ticket, Sgt. Crump says.

She was given a trespassing warning and removed from the area, but was recognized by airport personnel again as she was loitering Tuesday.

The Associated Press reported on August 13 that Hartman had flown to Los Angeles from San Jose without a ticket and received probation.

About a week earlier when initial reports of the ticket-less flight came out, the Associated Press said she had been arrested again at a California airport.

Hartman previously told authorities that she feels safer in airports after living on the streets and reportedly wanted to fly somewhere warmer because she was suffering from cancer.

She is being booked for criminal trespassing and will receive a mental health evaluation.
