A man is in police custody Tuesday after he apparently gained access to the tarmac at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, officials said. They say it's possible he got onto the taxiway by hopping a fence.

The airport tweeted earlier Tuesday that the suspect may have exited a plane, but later said it is not sure that happened. One user posted a video showing the man approaching the aircraft.

Another user posted video of the man in his underwear being taken into custody:
