Hopping in the cockpit for the Carters!
How far would you go to be on the run with Bey and Jay? It turns out one fan would go all the way up.
According to WDAS, Zemarcuis Devon Scott decided he needed to see the duo "by any means necessary" and allegedly attempted to commandeer and fly an American Eagle jet from Texarkana Regional Airport to see the famous couple's second joint tour.
Scott was found sitting in the cockpit of one of American Eagle's planes by police, who quickly apprehended him. Police questioning revealed he doesn't have any formal pilot training, FOX8 reports.
He told police he didn't believe flying a plane was any more complicated than pushing buttons and pulling levers.
The 18-year-old was arrested on Monday, August 6, on charges of commercial burglary and attempted theft of property with a value greater than $25,000. His bond was set at $25,000.
