The sad case of serial stowaway Marilyn Hartman popped its head up again today as we learn that the 64-year-old was arrested at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport yesterday for the second time. Hartman, who on at least a few occasions has successfully managed to board aircraft without purchasing a ticket, was charged with felony probation violation and misdemeanor criminal trespassing.
Bond has currently been set at $150,000, reports the Chronicle, who also note that Hartman was living in Chicago after being released there in December with the terms of her probation stipulating that she stay away from O'Hare.
Hartman first grabbed our attention when she was caught for the fourth time trying to board a Hawaii-bound flight leaving from SFO. Following the media scrutiny in the wake of that incident, she admitted to suffering from mental illness, and now it remains to be seen whether or not she will be able to return to the nursing home in Chicago where she had been staying since December.
Either way, if the past is any guide, she's unlikely to remain in Chicago for too long.
Update: Via Chicagoist, we hear that a Cook County judge admonished her "like an exasperated dad," and is trying to figure out a more restrictive place to house her to keep this from happening. This was her sixth arrest in Cook County in ten months.
