The Latest: LA Airport Police Says Man Was Looking For Food

HONOLULU (AP) — Los Angeles Airport police say a 25-year-old man with a Turkish passport who was arrested after walking through a door leading onto an airfield ramp provided an address in Santa Monica when questioned by authorities.

Airport police spokesman Rob Pedregon said Saturday that Anil Uskanli opened the door and walked up to a contractor early Friday to ask where he could get some food.

Airport police say Uskanli had been drinking but was not drunk. He was cited for misdemeanor trespassing and released.

Pedregon says such incidents are relatively common at the airport. He says Uskanli did not appear to have another motive for walking through the door since he stopped almost immediately to ask about food.

Federal authorities say Uskanli was later arrested in connection with a disturbance on a Hawaii-bound flight.
