(MSNBC) Claiming airport screeners were “harassing” him, Oregon resident John E. Brennan, 50, stripped naked at Portland International Airport on Tuesday night.

John E. Brennan was arrested Tuesday night after stripping naked at Portland International Airport.

Brennan “disrobed completely” at a security area, and refused to put his clothes back on despite requests by TSA screeners and police, according to the Port of Portland Police Department summary report.

Brennan remained nude and “exposed to all passengers including children both inside and outside of the secured area,” causing two screening lanes to be closed and some passengers to cover their eyes and their children’s eyes. Others stepped out of the screening lanes to “look, laugh and take photos.”
