Drunk passenger strips naked on runway

2013-10-10 10:17

Manchester - A passenger aboard an easyJet flight was arrested after being abusive on a flight and stripping naked on a runway at Manchester Airport.

The Telegraph reports that the 52-year-old man appeared to be drunk and had been verbally abusing passengers on a flight home from Malta. 

After disembarking he continued misbehaving, shouting at the ground staff and even challenging the captain to a fight before taking his clothes off. 

Police officers were called to meet the man at Terminal One and resorted to using a dry taser to get him to cooperate.

An easyJet spokesman said of the disturbance on September 26: "The passenger had arrived into Manchester on flight EZY1328 from Malta.

"The safety and security of its passengers and crew is easyJet's highest priority and, like all airlines, disruptive behaviour is taken seriously.

The passenger was met by the police as a result of his behaviour."

Part of the incident was caught on camera. Take a look at the video below.
