Video Shows Man Sneaking Onto Tarmac at MIA

A man was caught on camera crawling through a luggage carousel and running onto the tarmac at Miami International Airport over the weekend.

The man was seen talking on a cell phone as he made his way past an empty security checkpoint at the American Airlines ticket counter Saturday, according to videos obtained by the Miami Herald.

The video shows the man dive onto a baggage conveyor belt as he made his way onto a runway. Another video shows him being chased by airport employees, and a third shows him being handcuffed by officers as he lays on the ground.

The footage was given to the Herald by a source who didn’t want to be named. The source said the man accessed a highly restricted area.

Miami-Dade Police refused to comment on the incident, and wouldn’t confirm the man’s name or what charges he may face.
