Usually when you hear about stripping at airports, the TSA is involved.
Not this time.
A man who was apparently disgruntled over an overbooked flight decided to show his frustration in an unusual way: he stripped down to his birthday suit.
The incident occurred at Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina on Wednesday morning. Witnesses said that the man became angry after being told that a US Airways flight to Jamaica was overbooked.
Sherry Ketchie, one of the unfortunate witnesses to the bizarre event, told WBTV what she saw:
“I seen some people running and I was wondering what they was running from and people were standing there snickering, so I walked over and [an airport employee] told me the man was angry over the Jamaican flight.”
Ketchie says the man sounded very angry and was yelling.
“He had his clothes on, at that point, and then he started standing there with his arms crossed and hollering at the lady at the desk. He stood there for a moment and then started talking off his clothes. I ain’t never seen nothing [like that] in my life.”
She says the man didn’t say anything as he was taking his clothes off.
“More people started getting back because that’s when security started surrounding him, waiting for Charlotte-Mecklenburg police to come in,” she said.
“I was not expecting to see nothing like that, I’ve never seen nothing like that at Charlotte Douglas airport. Never,” she said. “And that’s when I got out my phone and started taking pictures.”
The man er, hung out in the airport in the buff for about an hour before police responded. They confirmed they responded to a “disturbance call where a male was suffering from a medical issue,” and said the man was taken by Medic for treatment and will not be facing charges.
