Man arrested after jumping from a plane at LAX

A man was arrested after jumping out of a taxiing plane at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday night.

The man opened a service door and jumped off the United Express flight to Salt Lake City as he was leaving a door around 7:10 p.m., our sister network NBC4 reported.

The man allegedly tried to open the cockpit door several times before jumping out of the plane.

Airport police arrived at the scene and detained the man with unknown injuries. His name was not released.

No one else was injured in the incident, and the plane returned to its doorstep.

Airport police and the FBI were investigating the matter as a possible kidnapping attempt.

No further details have been provided.

The incident marks the second security breach at LAX in two days.

A man was taken into custody at LAX on Thursday after driving his car through a fence and onto a track, initiating a brief chase with police.
