Naked man arrested at Daytona Beach International Airport after issuing bomb threat

A naked man was arrested on Friday at Daytona Beach International Airport after he prompted an evacuation with statements about a bomb.

A 25-year-old man had gone into an airport restroom that was under construction, placed a bag inside a hole in a wall and emerged from the restroom without wearing his clothes.

He went to the baggage claim area only wearing a pair of sock, where he was chased by responding deputies.

Deputies say he made statements indicating a bomb was about to go off in the airport. A deputy deployed his Taser on the man, who was then taken into custody.

Bomb and K-9 units cleared the terminal and confirmed there were no explosive devices. The airport was reopened around 9:40 a.m.

Charges are pending against the guy including burglary, making a false bomb report, criminal mischief, resisting arrest without violence, exposure of sexual organs and unlawful possession of personal identification of another person.
