Man Arrested For Making His Own Exit Off A Plane

Here is a new one, and a new Douchebag of the Week contender. A man on a Delta Airlines flight that landed at Phoenix airport decided he was special and made his own exit at the gate.

An airline passenger was arrested at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport on Tuesday evening after opening an emergency door on a Delta Air Lines flight as passengers were exiting at a gate.

Police spokesman Sgt. Tommy Thompson says the 37-year-old man arrived in Phoenix from Salt Lake City about 4:30 p.m. His name has not been released.

After getting out of the plane, the man was detained and arrested on the tarmac.

Thompson says the flight taxied into the gate at Sky Harbor Terminal 3. As people were getting off the plane, the man opened an emergency door and walked out on the plane's wing. Police and federal authorities questioned the man. Thompson says charges are pending.
