A man was arrested at Seattle International Airport on Friday after breaking past a security checkpoint, dodging police and ending up on an empty plane.

According to KOMO News, the man is believed to be in his 20s and was possibly intoxicated.

He reportedly sprinted past security agents and was chased by police and TSA agents but managed to get outside onto the tarmac.

The man then raced up a stairway and broke the window of a door at the end of an airbridge before crawling through and boarding a plane.

"He had to be tackled to the ground," an airport spokesman said.

CNN reports that he got onto an American Airlines plane.

The man was taken to jail.
