Aditya Singh, 36, was arrested last weekend at Chicago's O'Hare Airport.
This Los Angeles resident was in an area closed to the public and had been spotted by two employees who alerted security.
It had actually been three months since the Californian was in the terminal, which he refused to leave for fear of the Covid-19, reports
He was charged with "violation of an airport area closed to the public".
Judged January 27
The thirty-something was also indicted for "minor theft".
He was in fact in possession of an access badge, declared missing by an employee since October 26, a week after the arrival of the thirty-something.
Since then, he has reportedly lived in a secure area of the airport, asking for some food from the passengers.
The man is an unemployed hotel graduate.
He has not committed any violence and his criminal record is clean.
While awaiting trial on January 27, he may be released on bail of $ 1,000, but access to the airport will be prohibited.
The Chicago Aviation Department reassured its customers, assuring that the man was not considered dangerous.
