Man at Airport Forgets ID, Hops on Luggage Belt

When a Columbia University researcher was denied screening to board his flight at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York for having no photo ID, he jumped onto a moving luggage belt.

Edward Hall III, 24, was trying to make a United Airlines flight to San Francisco earlier this week, when a TSA agent refused to screen him, police said, reports the New York Post.

"Can you put me in a suitcase and send me down the baggage belt?" Hall asked the ticket agent, who obviously refused.

"I just wanted to make my flight," Hall said to the police, who arrested him for trespassing about 20 minutes later near the tarmac, reports the paper.

Ironically, in an online profile Hall said he researches "human impatience."
