NASHVILLE — Travellers were treated to an unpleasant sight Sunday at Nashville International Airport: a naked man walking around before he was arrested.

It’s been revealed by authorities that Cherry has pleaded guilty in 2009 to public indecency after he was arrested for walking around the Nashville Airport’s economy parking lot naked. It’s alleged that officials have seen Cherry walking around naked outside but until now he hasn’t made it inside the facility while naked.
A passenger travelling through the airport at the time of the incident told WSMV-TV, “I was pretty impressed with Nashville. Aside from a few people whose jaws were dropped, everyone else was doing their thing, going on with business as usual. It was a great start to Nashville; it’s a great city.”
