A woman with a history of sneaking aboard airplanes, including in the Bay Area, has been arrested again at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.

Chicago police say 64-year-old Marilyn Hartman, formerly of San Francisco, was arrested Wednesday at an airport bus shuttle center. She’s scheduled to appear Thursday in bond court.

Hartman has tried numerous times in recent years to board planes without a ticket, succeeding at least once by flying from San Jose, California, to Los Angeles in August 2014.

Hartman was arrested twice in two days last summer at O’Hare and Chicago’s Midway International Airport. She also has airport-related arrests in Arizona, and has been arrested and detained for trespassing multiple times at San Francisco International Airport.

Hartman was released on probation to a Chicago nursing home in December, and ordered to avoid airports and Chicago’s Union Station.

Hartman is now charged with felony probation violation and misdemeanor criminal trespass.
