The incident took place at McCarran Airport in Las Vegas. An Alaska Airlines flight was set to take off for Portland but suffered a delay thanks to the rambunctious daredevil. Passengers say that he came out of nowhere and just appeared on the plane’s wing. Eventually, authorities made their way to the scene, with a few of them climbing onto the wing to apprehend the man who proceeded to remove his shoes and socks before he took a nasty fall to the pavement. Cops didn’t hesitate and immediately pounced on the man before taking him away in handcuffs.

Authorities have yet to release a name for the man, and it’s believed that he hopped a fence and ran around on the grounds before taking to the plane’s wing. It’s believed that he had mental issues.
