Unruly man on Hawaii flight may have caused security breach at LAX hours earlier – Los Angeles Times

The radio call came in at 2:45 a.m. Friday about a man who had stepped out of an emergency fire exit leading to the Los Angeles International Airport tarmac and loudly asking, “Where can I get something to eat around here?”

Officials said Anil Uskanil, 25, of Turkey, was immediately spotted by an airline worker, who “escorted the guy back inside the terminal,” Rob Pedregon, a spokesman for the LAX Police Department, said Saturday. “They determined that he had been drinking but did not meet the criteria for drunk in public.”

Uskanil, a ticketed passenger on an American Airlines flight who had gone through Transportation Security Administration screening in Terminal 5, “was arrested for misdemeanor trespassing, cited, given a pending court date and released from custody,” Pedregon said.

The man’s problems apparently did not end there.
