PITTSBURGH, June 15 (UPI) -- A US Airways employee apparently stowed away on a Florida-North Carolina flight before being stopped in Pittsburgh, authorities said.
Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Ann Davis told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review the agency is investigating whether the man, who was not named, "improperly used his airport credentials to access the aircraft and subsequently travel on a flight from Tampa to Charlotte."
Allegheny County, Pa., police Superintendent Charles Moffatt said the employee did not resist when stopped upon arrival at Pittsburgh International Airport from Charlotte Tuesday.
"When we stopped him, he asked to be taken for a psychiatric evaluation," Moffatt said. "At this time, we're not planning to file any charges. We're not aware of any crime committed in our jurisdiction."
US Airways spokeswoman Valerie Wunder would confirm only an incident involving an employee. Davis said his airport access credentials were revoked pending investigation.
