Around 2 p.m. yesterday a man scaled a fence near Sepulveda and Lincoln at LAX and headed for a Delta flight that was preparing to depart. He started doing push ups before being apprehended.
Bizarre travel day here at #LAX.
Right now sitting on a plane that was readying for takeoff.
Someone ran onto the tarmac and apparently tried to stop / jump onto our plane.
He was just arrested by police. Law enforcement currently searching for foreign objects on runway. pic.twitter.com/vGTCLzNszL

According to one passenger,
He got underneath the plane. He was jumping up, trying to touch the wings. He ran to the other side of the plane, was touching the engines. He got down on the ground, started doing some push-ups. By that time, all the police and security got down on him
Here’s the man being apprehended.
