A traveler facing flight troubles at Charlotte Douglas International Airport was seen yelling at employees before taking off all his clothes.

The unidentified man had been told that his flight was overbooked, and witness Sherry Ketchie claims that after he shouted at an employee, he stripped naked in the middle of the airport:

“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.”

…”I was not expecting to see nothing like that,” Ketchie told WBTV. “I’ve never seen nothing like that at Charlotte Douglas airport. Never,” she said. “And that’s when I got out my phone and started taking pictures.”

Cell phone pictures taken by Ketchie show the man being escorted away either by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police or airport security. The police say that they don’t plan to file charges against the man, and that the man was “suffering from a medical issue.”
