Alejandro Carlson Arrested
According to police and an eyewitness, it was not a bird or any other plane that stopped a flight from Las Vegas to Portland, Oregon, but rather a man who came to the wing.
The incident took place around 13:30. According to Evans and police, the plane was taking a taxi for takeoff in local time. LVMPD said the man jumped over the airport fence.
Alaska Airlines said in a statement that the pilots of the plane noticed a man running on the plane and immediately sought the aircraft control tower for assistance.
Evans, who filmed the incident and posted it on his Facebook page, said he could not see how the suspect got to the top of the wing, but within a few minutes walked outside his window.
Evans said, “Our first reaction was, ‘Uhhh, who is this man? Is this a terrorist type of activity?’ It happened.
According to Evans, the airmen inside the plane instructed passengers to stay in their seats while they and officers tried to take the man off the wing. According to Evans’ video, after about 45 minutes, officers used emergency exits to get to the wing and approached the suspect.
The man walked to the far end of the wing, slid off the asphalt, and the officers quickly caught him, showing him a video.
Evans said he and other passengers watched the incident in shock.
“The flight attendant told me I was a flight attendant in 30 years, nothing like this had happened before,” Evans told ABC News.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation responded to the airport security breach, but it was immediately determined that the incident was not a federal lawsuit, and LVMPD took custody of Carlson, according to investigators. The police had been treated at the University Medical Center for minor injuries and held in Clark County Prison for ignoring public safety and trespassing.
According to the police, the investigation continues.
Evans praised the aircraft crew, airport officials, and police for handling the situation.
“Everyone was relieved at last,” She said.
