LAX passenger arrested after driving onto tarmac, police say

A Los Angeles International Airport passenger was arrested early Saturday morning after he became enraged and ran from Terminal 4 onto the tarmac, airport police said.

The passenger appeared to be experiencing a mental health crisis, Capt. Karla Rodriguez said. “Police responded and during their attempt to take the suspect into custody, force was used,” she said.

The man, who was not identified, was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer and trespassing on airport property, she said. He was taken to a nearby hospital for a mental health evaluation.

a video obtained by CBS shows a shirtless man in black shorts running across the asphalt past an American Airlines jetliner with a police officer in tow. The officer quickly tackles the man and pushes him to the sidewalk.
