Guy Upset Over Overbooked US Airways Flight Strips Naked In Charlotte Airport



There are many things you can do when a flight is overbooked, but a lot of those things won’t get you on an airplane. That includes stripping down to your birthday suit in the airport while yelling at people, like witnesses say one man did after trying unsuccessfully to get aboard a US Airways flight at Charlotte Douglas International Airport to Jamaica yesterday.

One witness told says she saw people running and others standing around snickering, so she asked an airport employee what was going on and was told there was a guy angry over the flight to Jamaica. She says he 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,” she told WBTV. “He stood there for a moment and then started taking off his clothes. I ain’t never seen nothing [like that] in my life.”

The yelling stopped when he started disrobing, she says, while the crowd started to back away from him and security swooped in.

“And that’s when I got out my phone and started taking pictures,” she added like a true 21st century American.

All told, she says he was au naturale in the concourse for about an hour.

Police confirmed to the station that they responded to a “disturbance call where a male was suffering from a medical issue.”

He was taken by a medic for treatment and won’t be facing charges, the police added.
