      Katie Mendez

      Two people were arrested at the Columbia Regional Airport after they got on a plane without going through the screening process.

      33-year-old Katie Mendez and 36-year-old Martin Mendez-Costabel were arrested July 21 when they refused to get off the American Airlines flight.

      The couple was arrested on charges of first-degree trespassing and later released on signature bonds.
