HALIFAX, Canada (KRON) — A woman is under arrest in Canada after she allegedly climbed a barbed-wire fence at the airport and went running onto the runway to keep her husband from flying off to visit another woman.

The 37-year old woman first went to the ticket counter to try to get the plane stopped. When she didn’t get any satisfaction there, police say she drove her car to the fence, scaled it, and ran out into the middle of the runway.

At least one small plane had to be re-routed for safety reasons.

Authorities say an airport truck got to the woman but workers had to subdue her when she tried to jump out of it and get back on the tarmac.

The Mounties say they checked with the woman’s husband and he was never on the plane to begin with.

Authorities say they are reviewing security at the airport after the incident.
