Man at Las Vegas airport climbs onto wing of plane taxiing for takeoff

first_imgfrankpeters/iStockBy IVAN PEREIRA and ALEX STONE, ABC News(LAS VEGAS) — It wasn’t a bird or another plane that grounded a flight from Las Vegas to Portland, Oregon, before takeoff Saturday, but rather a man who got onto the wing, according to police and an eyewitness.Police arrested Alejandro Carlson, 41, after the man reportedly got onto the tarmac at McCarran International Airport, ran up to an Alaska Airlines airplane and somehow climbed up one of the wings, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said. The suspect moved about the wing for nearly 45 minutes before he fell onto the tarmac, Erin Evans, a passenger on the plane, told ABC News.“It was definitely one of the strangest things I’ve ever seen in my life,” Evans, 50, of Vancouver, Washington, said.The incident took place around 1:30 p.m. local time while the plane was taxiing for takeoff, according to Evans and police. The LVMPD said it appeared the man jumped the airport’s fence.Alaska Airlines said in a statement that the plane’s pilots noticed a man running to the aircraft and immediately called the air traffic control tower for help.Evans, who filmed the incident and posted it on her Facebook page, said she could not see how the suspect was able to make his way to the top of the wing, but within minutes he was outside her window, walking on it.“Our first reaction was, ‘Uhhh, who is this guy? Is this a terrorist type of activity?’” Evans said.Air marshals inside the plane instructed passengers to remain in their seats as they and officers tried to get the man off the wing, according to Evans. After about 45 minutes, officers used emergency exits to get onto the wing and approached the suspect, according to Evans’ video.The man walked toward the very edge of the wing, slid off and fell onto the tarmac, and officers quickly apprehended him, the video showed.Evans said she and the other passengers watched the incident in shock.“The flight attendant told me in the 30 years that she’s been a flight attendant nothing like this happened before,” Evans told ABC News.The Federal Bureau of Investigation responded to the airport security breach, but it was quickly determined the incident was not a federal case, and LVMPD took custody of Carlson, according to investigators. He was treated for minor injuries at University Medical Center and booked into the Clark County Jail for trespassing and disregard for public safety, police said.The investigation is ongoing, according to police.Evans commended the plane’s crew, airport officials and police for their handling of the situation.“Everyone was relieved in the end,” she said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Evansville May See A $ 2.7 Million Boost In Revenue From “Sports Gaming”

first_imgwritten by Gail Riecken-Editor Of The CCO Statehouse NewsIf Senate Bill 552 becomes law, Indiana will join 8 states allowing sports gaming. Senators  Mark Messmer and Jon Ford authored SB 552 to legalize sports wagering across the state, in most circumstances.According to the SB 552 Fiscal Report, “The bill authorizes sports wagering at riverboats, racinos, a Vigo County casino, and satellite facilities. It provides for the administration and conduct of sports wagering. It imposes initial and annual fees on a licensed owner, operating agent, vendor, or permit holder conducting sports wagering.”The same bill, SB 552, has an interesting section. The bill allows a Gary riverboat license transfer to Vigo County (Terre Haute).And, if the Gary riverboat transfer takes place, legislators have instituted payments to the locations that Casinos would be impacted, namely Evansville and French Lick.There would be payoffs from the Vigo County license owner to Evansville Tropicana totaling $2.7 million over 3 years, and payoffs to West Baden Historical and Preservation and Maintenance Fund of $4.5 million over 3 years.Finally, the bill addresses a situation of one operation being too close to another. SB 552 includes a new rule about relocations, stipulating that a riverboat cannot get a license if relocation is within 75 miles of the closest operation.The Senate bill, authored by Senator Mark Messmer and Senator Jon Ford, has had mixed support in the Senate. Passage of the bill was 38 to 11.  Area State Senators Vaneta Becker or Senator Jim Tomes voted “NO.”SB 552 raises questions that need answering. What is the data showing the revenue impact?  I wonder if it isn’t much more serious.Why are the payments unequal to the Evansville and the West Baden Fund?  If it is the problem of distance with the Vigo Co license where the transfer will take revenue from two other casinos, why aren’t the payments ongoing?It sounds like this bill has gotten a lot of interest where legislators worked to solve problems with the transfer of the Gary license to Terre Haute. I just wonder why we haven’t heard more about this bill from the local media and our local Legislators?The Statehouse File notes House Speaker Brian Bosma considers SB 552 “ a major expansion of gambling. In the same article, the writer quotes Governor Eric Holcomb. “Holcomb said he will ‘need to take a deep dive into all the details’ of the legislation.I understand the Governor’s comments. Sports gaming is an expansion. But the riverboat transfer doesn’t seem to have that characteristic. It seems to be rearranging clientele and gambling revenue.Evansville needs money. This could be a nice windfall.  But, let’s make sure we get all that we deserve. Let’s make sure we get the same revenue for this bill as the West Baden Hotel.SSB 552 is now in the House. Senator Todd Huston is the sponsor. I’ll be watching for the assignment to a committee and when it is scheduled for discussion.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Renowned Runner Found Dead

first_imgMicah True, also known as Caballo Blanco, was found dead in the New Mexico wilderness yesterday. He had departed Tuesday morning on a trail run in the Gila Wilderness and never returned. After massive search and rescue operations were launched, his body was found five miles from the trailhead. A cause of death has not yet been determined, but no trauma was immediately visible.Micah singlehandedly brought attention to the Tarahumara’s prowess and plight. He lived in the canyons for two decades, following in the footsteps of the Tarahumara and learning their values, traditions, and ways of simple living close to the land. For ten years, he has been organizing the Copper Canyon Ultramarathon to bring together Tarahumara and international runners in a shared journey through the deepest canyons on the continent. The race—and Micah himself —were made famous by Christopher McDougall’s bestselling Book, Born to Run. Despite all of the fanfare, Micah remained humble, generous, and devoted to the Tarahumara. He used the book’s popularity to raise even more prize money and corn for the Tarahumara runners this year.I saw Micah three weeks ago at the 2012 Copper Canyon Ultramarathon. He was the happiest I had ever seen him. He seemed to have a tranquility and centeredness, even as record numbers of Tarahumara descended on Urique to run the race. He ensured that every single one of them went home with food.The Tarahumara people have lost a close friend, and so have I. The best way I can honor Micah’s legacy is to devote even more of my energy to helping the Tarahumara people protect their ancestral canyons and ways of life. (To learn how you can help, visit barefootfarm.org or norawas.org).But for now, I’m going for a run, and I’ll be thinking about Micah. I hope you can dedicate a few of your miles and thoughts this week to a true friend of the Tarahumara. Micah, you will be deeply missed. Run free, amigo.last_img read more
