I’m Late, I’m Late, for a Very Important Date!

Chris Haynes, 26, was pretty easy to spot as a suspicious person at the airport in Tallahassee, Fla. First, it was just before 4:00 a.m., and no planes were scheduled to depart until around 6:00 a.m. Second, he pulled into a “drop-off” area in his car, which he left unattended. And third, as he sprinted down the hallway at the airport claiming he had “a plane to catch,” he was only clad in his underwear. A security officer yelled at Haynes to stop, and when he didn’t, the officer said he’d “tase” him with his stun gun. Haynes allegedly kept running, so the officer tased him, and took him into custody in the main concourse. Haynes, who didn’t have a plane ticket, provided a possible motive to the officer after his arrest: “I kinda always wanted to be tased,” he said. (RC/Tallahassee Democrat) ...Let’s hope it met all of his expectations.
