ROMULUS, Mich. (WXYZ) — Newly released video from the Wayne County Airport Authority shows a man calmly strip down at the entrance of Detroit Metro Airport and stroll past a TSA checkpoint last month.

The June 21 incident went viral after travelers posted video of the pandemonium as it unfolded and the man approached a metal detector around 6:30 a.m.

WXYZ obtained video from the Airport that shows the man walk in the entrance at McNamara Terminal, take off his clothes, blow past several security guards and the faces of the horrified travelers who witnessed the scene.

Shameka Scott was traveling to Atlanta when she heard commotion and turned to see the naked man running past security.

"I’m just shocked he got that far through TSA," she said. "I’m just grateful he did ‘t have a bomb or anything like that. I could have been seriously hurt."

The man was arrested without a struggle taken to a hospital. It was later determined he did not post a threat and was not charged with a crime.
