Marilyn Hartman, the woman who desperately wants to catch a flight to Hawaii – regardless of whether she has a boarding pass or not, was again arrested at San Francisco International Airport for violating a court order to stay away from the airport and trespassing.
Hartman, 62, of San Francisco, who was released of her own recognizance after violating the court order the first time just last week was back in jail Wednesday after she was arrested at the Terminal 3 baggage claim, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.
On March 18, she was arrested at an airport food court that is beyond the security checkpoint, prosecutors said at the time.
Hartman was ordered to stay away from the airport after three attempts in February to sneak aboard a flight to Hawaii in an attempt to go somewhere warm. On her first attempt, she made it all the way onto a plane and was only found out after the person who actually had the ticket for her seat showed up.
I’m not sure how much of it is true, but all the articles I’ve seen quote her as saying she has cancer and wants to live our her days in a warm climate like Hawaii. That being said, if she can’t afford a plane ticket to Hawaii I’m not sure how that would play out in practice (the article does state she has an apartment in San Francisco). Sad (and crazy) story, for sure.
So I might regret this, but Marilyn, if you can fly in a way that doesn’t violate your court orders, I’ll gladly book you an award ticket to Hawaii. Just email me.
