A passenger on a delayed Ryanair flight from London became frustrated and climbed onto a wing after opening the emergency exit, according to the Associated Press. The passenger exited the aircraft 30 minutes after the plane had landed in Malaga, Spain, on January 1.

The plane’s passengers were standing in the aisle before the man, whose name has not been disclosed, became impatient, found the emergency exit, and walked onto the plane’s wing. After the police were called, the man returned to the plane’s cabin. The rest of the passengers waited for another 15 minutes before leaving the plane.

Spanish police arrested the man and have taken over the case, a Ryanair spokesperson told Business Insider. They have opened a complaint against the man for breaching security, according to the Associated Press.

Another passenger filmed the incident.
