On Friday morning, around 6:30 a.m., a man walked up to a TSA checkpoint at the Detroit airport, “removed all of his clothing..and approached a metal detector.”
Way to start the day. Naked guy tries to dash through security at the Detroit airport.

The man reportedly made it through TSA screening but authorities were called and both police and the fire department responded. However, determining there was no threat, police did not arrest him.
Naked man was taken to a local hospital. No injuries were reported outside of eye damage to onlookers.
This comes just months after a passenger claimed he needed to fly naked because clothes affect his ‘agility’ (and therefore his ability to fly) and after a naked male passenger was detained at Chicago O’Hare after running around outside on the tarmac.
For reasons I’ve never quite been able to fathom there’s a long history of naked passengers in airports. And yet Naked-Air somehow didn’t succeed.
