ROMULUS, MI — Well, here’s something you don’t see every day – a naked man walking through airport security.
According to the Wayne County Airport Authority, an unidentified man walked up to a checkpoint at Detroit Metropolitan Airport’s McNamara Terminal early Friday morning and completely disrobed. Underwear and all.
This was the scene today at @DTWeetin when a naked man ran buck naked past @TSA and was arrested. @kiertzner7 has the story TONIGHT on 7 Action News at 6. #nakedman #Detroit pic.twitter.com/IjzyJzmsv3

No x-ray necessary for this one, let the man pass!
After stripping down to his birthday suit, the man disconnected a stanchion, or barrier, and approached a metal detector with all the confidence in the world. However, he was stopped by security and prevented from walking through.
Airport police and fire crews responded and determined the man didn’t pose a threat. The airport says the man was taken to an area hospital for evaluation.
Word of his naked shenanigans spread like fire on Twitter, with many people poking fun at the situation.
Lines probably would move a lot faster if everyone was naked. ???? https://t.co/JOM1ChhpZt
