A woman with a history of sneaking aboard airplanes has been arrested again at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.

Marilyn Hartman, 64, was allegedly at a bus shuttle center at O'Hare when she was taken into custody around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Police said she was charged on a trespassing violation and will face a judge in bond court Thursday.

Hartman has been arrested several times on trespassing charges for trying to sneak past security and get onto planes at O'Hare and Midway International Airport to stow away.

Back in July, she tried to board a plane at Midway without a ticket less than 24 hours after being released from jail.

Recently, Hartman was confined to a locked mental health facility. But earlier this month, a judge allowed her to transfer to another facility, which allowed her more freedom.

She has had several odd confrontations with police at airports across the country and has spent at least 145 days in jail.

As part of Hartman's mental health probation, she was ordered to stay away from Chicago's airports.
