PORTLAND – A 49 year old traveler set the Portland International Airport, Oregon, on its head when he stripped down to his bare skin before submitting to a TSA security check.
The man, who got arrested for his open display of nude flesh, said he did it in protest against the absurd security rules.
Scroll Down For Video:A few travelers quickly covered their eyes and some parents followed suit covering up their children’s faces while the man stood naked in queue.
Others enjoyed the ‘view’ and stood in line to quickly snap a photo or two.
The traveler was arrested and taken into custody after he was asked but refused to put his clothes back on.
The man said he traveled a lot and was fed up with all the shenanigans and the intimidating practices of TSA security agents.
Portland police determined the man was fully sober and competent and was let go with a verbal warning.
Once at the airport he had to sit idle for several hours, fully clothed, because the incident had caused him to miss his flight to San Jose, California.
A similar incident happened at Denver International Airport in Colorado just a week ago when a woman stripped naked because she was mad over the way TSA agents were treating her.
The woman was smoking and when she was asked to put out her cigarette she got angry and in retaliation she stripped down to her skinnies.
Totally nude and undaunted by other travelers, the women even took up a conversation with one TSA agent.
But unlike our Portland nudist, the ‘Denver’ woman reportedly was mentally unstable.
