Air travel low: naked drunken urinator tries to fight pilot

egtmedia59In a new low for air travel, a bald-headed, middle-aged, burly, tattooed drunk has stripped naked at an airport, urinated in public view and then challenged the captain to a fight before being tasered by police.

Britain’s Guardian newspaper reported that a “burly, tattooed 52-year-old” was caught on video “stripping to his black underpants, shouting and remonstrating after stepping off the easyJet flight from Malta to Manchester”. British newspapers published this pixellated photo

Manchester Evening News went one better, offering readers an “incredible video of his runway rant”.

Passengers at the scene wanted only to avoid the man. According to the Manchester Evening News, the man stripped down to his underpants before stripping completely naked and challenging the pilot to fight. At that point the man’s female companion argued with him and slapped him across the face.

The paper understood that the trouble began mid-flight when the man became abusive, got into an argument and started swearing at fellow passengers.

Unsurprisingly, passengers reported that he appeared to be drunk.

Police turned up and used a ‘dry’ Taser – where the gun is held against the target to cause shock and pain – when the naked man refused to co-operate.  He was then arrested and escorted from the airport, the paper said.

The incident seems to represent a new low for air travel and for British holidaymakers. Yet incredibly, it seems the man was simply issued with an on-the-spot fine.

Footage of the scene was on the Manchester Evening News site last night. Those who wish to view it can form their own conclusion:
