Arrested for what? You already stated that there is no law requiring the
presentation of ID at an airport, only a law making it illegal to hijack a
Disobeying a rule designed to prevent an illegal act does not make you
guilty of said illegal act.
For example, some states have mandatory waiting periods before buying a
handgun in order to prevent someone from getting pissed off, buying a gun,
and shooting someone. If you attempt to bypass the waiting period, you
may be guilty of breaking a law, but not of attempted murder.
