A San Francisco woman placed on probation last month after she was arrested trying to sneak on board flights to Hawaii from San Francisco International Airport three different times was arrested at the airport again this morning, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office

Marilyn Jean Hartman, 62, was arrested at a food court in the airport's International Terminal around 9 a.m. today on suspicion of violating a court order and trespassing, according to Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt. 

Hartman had previously tried to get on planes bound for Hawaii on three separate occasions, on Feb. 15, 18 and 20, according to San Mateo County prosecutors. 

The first time she made it through security and onto an airplane, but was caught when the actual seat holder arrived. 

The second time she was caught at the security gate and told to leave the airport when she could not get through. 

The final time she was found with a discarded boarding pass and was arrested.

The previous times she had been warned and told to leave the airport. 

Hartman pleaded no contest on Feb. 27 to two counts of misdemeanor commercial burglary and was placed on 18 months probation with eight days credit for time served. She was ordered to stay away from SFO unless she had a ticket to fly. 

It did not appear that Hartman had tried to board a plane or gain access to a security checkpoint in this morning's incident, Rosenblatt said. 

She did not have a boarding pass in her name or the money to purchase a ticket.

Hartman previously told authorities that she has cancer and that she had wanted to go somewhere warm. Prosecutors said last month that they did not know if that information was correct.

I think Napa State would be a better place for this Crackpot.

Her behavior doesn't mean she's mentally disturbed. If she does have cancer, this may be her way of fulfilling a dream. Although I'm surprised that she wasn't put in jail for violating probation.
