Serial stowaway Marilyn Hartman arrested again at Chicago-O'Hare

- A woman with a history of sneaking aboard airplanes has been arrested again at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport. Chicago police say 64-year-old Marilyn Hartman was arrested about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday at an airport bus shuttle center. Police say she's in custody and scheduled to appear Thursday in bond court.

Hartman has tried numerous times in recent years to board planes without a ticket, succeeding at least once. She was arrested twice in two days last summer at O'Hare and Chicago's Midway International Airport. Police say she's a "habitual trespasser and stowaway in violation of her court-ordered probation."
