Authorities say 36-year-old Aditya Singh arrived in Chicago from Los Angeles on October 19th and never left. Two United Airlines employees spotted him in a restricted area of the terminal and asked for identification. He showed them an operation badge which had been reported stolen in late October. They turned him over to police who placed him under arrest and charged him with trespassing, impersonating and theft. He told authorities he was scared to fly back to L.A. because of surging COVID-19 cases. He's scheduled to appear in court next week. (People)
