News Americas, CHARLOTTE, N.C., Thurs. May 21, 2015: A man waiting to board a flight to Jamaica from the Charlotte Douglas International airport on Wednesday stripped down to his birthday suit after finding out his flight was overbooked.
The man, whose name was not released, was not intoxicated but was taken away for evaluation. He reportedly stood naked at the gate for over half-an-hour.
Sherry Ketchie shared photos with Charlotte CBS affiliate WBTV.
She told the station that she saw people running and then heard snickering, so she went to take a look.
“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,” Ketchie 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.”
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police confirmed they responded to a “disturbance call where a male was suffering from a medical issue.” They said the man was taken by Medic for treatment and will not be facing charges.
