Marilyn Hartman arrested at SFO – again

Get her a ticket for an aeroplane.

Marilyn Hartman, the woman who desperately wants to catch a flight to Hawaii – regardless of whether she has a boarding pass or not, was again arrested at San Francisco International Airport for violating a court order to stay away from the airport and trespassing.

Hartman, 62, of San Francisco, who was released of her own recognizance after violating the court order the first time just last week was back in jail Wednesday after she was arrested at the Terminal 3 baggage claim, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

On March 18, she was arrested at an airport food court that is beyond the security checkpoint, prosecutors said at the time.

Hartman was ordered to stay away from the airport after three attempts in February to sneak aboard a flight to Hawaii in an attempt to go somewhere warm. On her first attempt, she made it all the way onto a plane and was only found out after the person who actually had the ticket for her seat showed up.

During her arraignment last week, she told prosecutors that she feels safer at the airport than at her San Francisco Third Street apartment.

Hartman has claimed that she has cancer and wants to go live out the remainder of her days some place warm like Hawaii. A website was created by someone sympathetic to her plight and is hoping to raise the money for Hartman to fly to Hawaii legitimately. As of Thursday morning, the site has raised $540.

Hartman was booked into San Mateo County Jail on Wednesday and her bail is set at $7,500.
