Watch as wild runner makes mad dash around tarmac

December 13, 2016 Headline News No Comments Email Email

The bizarre police pursuit of a man apparently under the influence of drink or drugs, after he made a mad dash onto the tarmac behind a parked Air New Zealand plane, has been captured on video.

The strange incident happened at San Francisco Airport last week.

With police in hot pursuit, the man sprints frantically around the tarmac as police and airport vehicles swerve in front of him in a desperate attempt to stop him.

An airport spokesperson told local news outlet KPIX 5 the drama started at the ticket counter when a man “who appeared to be under the influence of a substance” turned up, apparently wanting to fly somewhere.

The man seems to have been flying already in his mind. He leapt right over a security fence and got onto the tarmac, with police and airport vehicles speeding after him. Police seem reluctant to leave their vehicles.

The weird scene took place in front of a parked Air New Zealand aircraft, though that may have been coincidence.

At least he didn’t manage to board a plane
