Man Strips Naked in Airport After Being Bumped From Flight

How cheeky! One airline passenger was so upset about being bumped from his flight, he stripped naked in protest!

Fellow passengers couldn't believe their eyes as the nude man strolled around the airport in Charlotte, North Carolina. Passenger Sherry Ketchie, who shot some bizarre photos, says the guy stripped after being told he couldn't get on his flight to Jamaica because it was overbooked.

Ketchie said, "The more they said that, the more angry he got. I thought it was normal until the clothes came off."

INSIDE EDITION's Les Trent asked Ketchie, "Did he have socks on?"

"No, he was completely nude," she responded.

Incredibly, Ketchie says the man was allowed to wander around naked for nearly an hour as everyone waited for police to arrive.

Ketchie said, "Security was just standing there around him. Some parents were getting their children out of the way. Some were snickering and laughing."

Police finally showed up and took the naked guy away. They say he had a "medical issue" and will not be charged.

CBS News Travel Editor Peter Greenberg has some priceless advice if you're planning to fly this Memorial Day weekend.

He told INSIDE EDITION, "Just because you have a reservation, doesn't mean you're getting on the plane. Make sure you have a boarding pass and you're at the gate at least an hour before because otherwise you may not exist. And they may offer you denied boarding compensation, but that doesn't mean you're going to get to where you want to go when you want to get there."
