Here’s hoping he at least got to ride the slide before he was arrested.
A 39-year-old man is facing criminal charges after he was found trespassing at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport yesterday, where he also somehow managed to activate the emergency slide on a United Airlines aircraft.

Police said a passenger at Sky Harbor witnessed the suspect, Zackaria Mohamud Mudasir, enter Terminal 2 from the closed Gate 3 jetway just after 2 a.m. on Tuesday, Fox 10 Phoenix reported.
The passenger notified the police, who responded to question Mudasir. They said he initially gave them a false name and was giving differing accounts of how he ended up in the terminal. He did admit, however, to deploying the slide on a United Airlines plane after authorities became aware that one had been activated.
Mudasir was charged with criminal trespassing, criminal damage and providing false information to law enforcement, per Fox 10.
