A shirtless man managed to break onto the airfield at Los Angeles International Airport early on Saturday morning and ran beside a taxiing American Airlines plane before he was eventually chased down by a police officer.

The early morning incident happened at around 6 am at Terminal 4 when the man somehow managed to get onto the tarmac dressed in only a pair of black shorts.

Police say the man suffered a mental health crisis while in the terminal and became irate before running onto the airfield. A police officer gave chase and eventually subdued the man by tasering him.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department explained: “During their attempt in taking the suspect into custody, a use of force occurred.”

The man was arrested for battery against a police officer but was later taken to the hospital for a mental health evaluation.

  • The guy was obviously just out for a jog. No need to taze him.

    In reality, he’s lucky he didn’t get shot. Props to the police for handling this well.
