Daily Herald report

A Grayslake woman accused of being a serial stowaway was arrested again early Sunday at O'Hare International Airport, just days after a Cook County judge ordered her to stay away from both of Chicago's airports.

Marilyn Hartman, 66, was detained at about 1:25 a.m. by police responding to a disturbance call about a woman refusing to leave the airport, Chicago police Officer Jessica Rocco said.

When officers arrived at the scene of the disturbance, the woman was gone.

Police later found Hartman in Terminal 3 and charged her with misdemeanor criminal trespassing to state land and violating her bond, Rocco said.

Hartman is being held at the Cook County jail without bail, ABC 7 reported. She is due in court Wednesday.

The new allegations come just 10 days after Hartman was arrested at O'Hare Jan. 18 on charges she slipped past security and boarded a British Airways flight to London. The airline later realized Hartman didn't have a ticket and returned her to Chicago.

On Thursday, a Cook County judge ordered Hartman released from custody on her own recognizance, but ordered her to undergo a mental health evaluation and warned her to stay away from airports.

Hartman has a long history of boarding or attempting to board commercial flights without a ticket.

In 2016, she was sentenced to six months of house arrest at a mental health facility.
