San Diego, CA (KTNV) -- A Las Vegas man has been arrested after he was found sleeping in the Jetway at a San Diego airport.

At approximately 6 a.m. on Aug. 24, an individual wearing an airline safety vest was found on a jet bridge at Gate 46 at San Diego International Airport.

When questioned, he exited the jet bridge and entered the terminal. He then attempted to board United Airlines flight 1034 bound for Houston at Gate 38.
