The FBI has accused a man of trying to fly on three seperate flights under two false names.

Robert Quran Hick, 30, was arrested March 16 and faces federal charges of fraud in connection with identification documents and entry by false pretenses.

According to a court affadavit, which uses initials for Hick's false names, Hick flew on a Delta Airlines flight from Atlanta to Birmingham under the name U.W. When he arrived in Birmingham, he obtained boarding passes for additional flight on United Airlines under the name M.M.

Hick exited and then tried to re-enter the secure side of the airport by going up a downward escalator. That's when he was stopped by Birmingham Aiport Authority. When he tried to re-enter the secure side a second time via a downward escalator, the TSA and Birmingham Police were notified.

During an interview with an FBI agent, Hick provided a false name and date of birth. Hick was arrested shortly thereafter.
