ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say a man took off more than his belt and shoes at a Detroit Metropolitan Airport security checkpoint, and that he got completely naked before trying to pass through a metal detector.
The Wayne County Airport Authority said in a statement that the man walked up to a checkpoint at the suburban Detroit airport early Friday and disrobed. He then disconnected a stanchion, or barrier, and approached a metal detector, but security didn’t let him through.
Airport police and fire crews responded and determined the man didn’t pose a threat, but word of his naked appearance spread on Twitter.
The airport says the man was taken to an area hospital for evaluation.
