Man Arrested Strolling Along the LaGuardia Tarmac

The insane-ing of our airports continues with the story of Andre Reid, a 21-year-old from Mt. Vernon, NY, who was spotted strolling along the runway by the pilot of a US Airways airplane, just moments before it was about to take off. That "spooked" the pilot, the NY Post reports, leading him to "dump" the flight — a security re-screening of all passengers and luggage.

At first Reid said he had a ticket for a flight to Florida, and had just gotten lost. But before long, cops had deduced he had wandered onto the runway after a fight with his stepfather. He'd apparently hoped to hop a flight to his grandma's house, who lives in West Palm Beach. It's like Little Red Riding Hood, but with giant, rolling Airbus 321 wheels instead of a wolf.
