Serial stowaway charged following latest arrest at O'Hare

Chicago. The legendary musician was taken to UCLA Medical Center for a cardiac incident Sunday night

According to prosecutors, she then tried and failed to board a flight to CT.

In a court filing after her arrest in July 2015 at O'Hare on trespass charges, Cook County prosecutors described Hartman as a "serial stowaway".

Hartman used her hair to hide her face and walk past two federal Transportation Security Administration agents who were checking documents at O'Hare last Sunday, prosecutors said Saturday. She was also banned from possessing firearms and is not allowed near O'Hare, per the judge's orders.

She's charged with felony theft and a misdemeanor count of criminal trespassing. Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says Marilyn Hartman, 66, was flown back to Chicago on Thursday night and taken into custody once she arrived. Once the plane landed in London, Hartman was detained by British Customs officials, Chicago police announced in a statement, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Hartman reportedly said she "may have" boarded aircrafts without a ticket eight times, the report said.

The so-called serial stowaway has been arrested several times across the country.

Lauren Huffman, spokeswoman for the Chicago Department of Aviation, said no passengers or visitors were ever at risk. "During the initial investigation it was determined that the passenger was screened at the security checkpoint before boarding a flight".

Marilyn Jean Hartman on Tuesday, Aug. 26, 2014.

But her freaky and headline-grabbing behavior has confounded authorities. The judge dished out a harsh scolding as he recounted Hartman's history, which included several attempts to escape from mental-health facilities in IL. "I can't figure out why that is", Raines told Hartman, according to the Chicago Tribune's account of the hearing.

In 2016, she was sentenced in Chicago to six months of house arrest and placed on two years of mental health probation.

She will appear in court on Saturday.

"And it's not as if she is, 'Catch me if you can.' It's nearly like, 'Just come catch me, ' " Assistant State's Attorney Jeff Allen told reporters during the hearing.

Authorities are unsure of her motives, but the judge presiding over her 2016 case said he believed she was "addicted to the attention".
