A man has been arrested after he activated an escape slide on a plane at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in Arizona.
39-year-old Zackaria Mudasir was seen entering a secure area of Terminal 2 at Sky Harbor from the closed jetway on the airfield of Gate 3. Police contacted Mudasir, who allegedly provided a fake name and refused to show identification. Police took him into custody, and he admitted to activating the slide.
It is unclear if anyone was onboard the United Airlines plane at the time. It is unclear how Mudasir was able to access the restricted area.
