    Prosecutors say an Arkansas man, who's not a pilot, is charged with trying to steal an American Eagle jet from Texarkana Regional Airport to fly to an out-of-state rap concert.

    Jail records show 18-year-old Zemarcuis Devon Scott, of Texarkana, was being held Wednesday on commercial burglary and attempted theft of property charges.

    The Texarkana Gazette reported Scott was arrested inside the cockpit before dawn on July 4. He was charged Monday, with bond at $25,000.

    An affidavit said Scott told Texarkana police, who responded to reports of a man seen jumping an airport fence, that he didn't think there was much more to flying than pushing buttons and pulling levers.

    Jail records didn't list an attorney for Scott. Details weren't immediately available on the concert destination.
