A woman lying across Martin's lap at the time said she did not know him, the newspaper reported.
Police arrested them both. As they disembarked, Martin told the woman, later identified as Dallal Farha, not to say anything since police didn’t have a case on them, according to police.
Police confirmed Martin’s identity by using fingerprints and found that he has several fraud convictions and was on federal probation.
Farha was traveling on a boarding pass with the initials A.M. She had a driver’s license with another name listed, police said. She also had credit and debit cards in other names.
Farha, according to WITI, "has an extensive record for fraud-related crimes" and had two active arrest warrants from Florida at the time of her arrest.
Investigators said the pair also had a notebook with names, birth dates and Social Security cards in it, WISN reported.
The true Smith was contacted by law enforcement officials and said that someone had stolen his identity and ruined his credit, WISN reported.
The Transportation Security Administration was contacted about the security issue and released the following statement to WITI:
"The circumstances surrounding this incident remain under review, and TSA is cooperating with law enforcement on the ongoing investigation. However, all passengers, along with their belongings, are physically screened through a TSA security checkpoint before boarding an aircraft."
