Naked airport protest man arrested
A US man was arrested after he stripped naked in a one man protest against airport security checks.
John E Brennan, 50, said he was fed up with being harassed by security at Portland International Airport, Oregon.
He took off all of his clothes and stood naked before other passengers, including children, reports KVAL.com.
Two screening lanes were closed as a result. Some passengers covered their eyes, as well as their children's, while others laughed and took photos.
TSA screeners asked Mr Brennan, who was due to fly to San Jose, California, to put his clothes back on, but he refused.
He was arrested and taken to jail. He faces charges of disorderly conduct and indecent exposure.
Mr Brennan's father, also John Brennan, told KATU News: "This is quite a shock. He hasn't been under any stress that I know of.
"He works for a computer company in California. He does something with the internet, which is just kind of mystical to me. This is quite a surprise."
