He set off a fire alarm, jumped off a jet way then ran onto the tarmac of Madrid-Barajas Airport in Spain on August 5th, all in an effort to make his Ryanair flight to the Canary Islands.
According to Huffington Post, the passenger (whose identity authorities haven't yet released) carried two bags as he broke every rule of Sky Law, BUT WAS STILL ALLOWED ON THE PLANE.
Airport employees recorded the video, which was then shared on CC.OO. Ryanair & Lesma Handling's Facebook page.
"This is how passengers in Madrid behave when they don't arrive in time for their flights," the translated caption reads.
"This particular passenger was missing a Ryanair's flight and, unbelievably, skipped several security protocols established by AENA in their airports. We're talking about level 4 security protocols! Not even with all those protocols we can feel safe..."
When the plane finally reached its destination, the passenger was detained by local authorities, CNN reports.
It's unclear whether or not the plane had to taxi back to the gate in order to let the passenger on, or if he was pulled into the aircraft with a rope (disclaimer: this an assumption).
A spokesperson for the Madrid Airport clarified that the passenger had "no terrorist motivations," nor did they suspect him of being a terrorist because he had cleared security before busting through a fire escape.
What a jerk.
It also appears that Mr. Jerk was chasing the wrong plane.
“It seems that he got on to the tarmac because he’d missed his flight but the plane he was trying to get on wasn’t his,” the spokeswoman explained.
“When he realised that, he got on the flight to Gran Canaria.”
What a lark!
Authorities speculate that though Mr. Jerk will not face jail time, he'll likely be slapped with some hefty fines.
