Los Angeles International Airport police took a man into custody after he scaled a fence and approached a Delta airplane as it prepared to depart, officials said. The man scaled an outer perimeter fence on Monday shortly after 2 p.m.
Officers spotted the man climb the fence and took him into custody as he appeared to be getting closer to a Delta plane that was staging for departure. One passenger on the Delta flight said it appeared the man was doing pushups before he was apprehended.
Police later identified the man as Luis Aguilar, 23, of Los Angeles. He will receive a mental health evaluation when he is released by police.
