Man Gets Nude For TSA Screeners!

Sun Jan 11, 2004 6:46 pm

I just found this story..........Is this how intense the Security has gotten at North American Airports that you Now have to arrive Nude? LOL  Big grin  Big grin

Jeez, what does it take to get through airport security these days? First, they want you to take off your shoes. Then they want you to take off your belt. But when Kent Hoffman showed up at the security checkpoint leading to Louis Armstrong International Airport's passenger concourses Tuesday wearing nothing but a smile, he might have gone just a little too far.

The 34-year old man from Springfield (MO) was naked as a jaybird when he arrived at the Concourse C checkpoint, just before 5:00 am Tuesday morning.

"He was talking about how he came to save the world," said Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Andrea McCauley.

When TSA screeners didn't buy that bit of unsolicited advertising, Hoffman ran back into the terminal building, flap-flap-flapping in the breeze all the way. Eventually, he was cornered by security personnel near a coffee shop. TSA workers held a sign up in front of Hoffman's wienerschnitzle until Jefferson Parish Sheriff's deputies came to arrest him.

Hoffman was booked in at the Gretna (LA) County Jail, where he's being held on $5,000 bond.

Louis Armstrong Airport spokeswoman Michelle Duffourc said it was the first time in the airport's history that someone had, er, streaked inside the terminal. "We would prefer it if people keep their clothes on in the building."


Best regards,

There have been a couple people who have gotten down to briefs in the TSA que before the security guys showed up.

At least it occured at 5:00 am, so there weren't a whole lot of people around. Michelle's comment summed up the fact that it was nothing more than a hearty chuckle for us.

Kind of reminded me of when David Niven got streaked at the Oscars back in the 70's.

". . .flap-flap-flapping in the breeze all the way."

This implies the dude was well-hung. Probably not an A.net regular.

It seems like he made the screeners job easier. He shouldn't have been arrested.

It is a good joke!
It is a good words to describe the ridiculous measures in US!
Better do not travel to America
May be TSA can learn some stupid China Communist idea:
Drink the liquid you bring onboard at the security to ensure the liquid is not poison.
It is the security measure at Beijing Capital Airport!

I thank god every time I am in the security line the shoe bomber guy did not have the bomb up his ass. Just imagine the stupid stuff we would be doing then. Give it time, we will be flying naked or be strip searched randomly.

So is taking a dump, though perhaps that's the second most normal thing in the world. Does your country recognize that as acceptable during security screening?

Shhh! Don't say it too loud. The TSA might make it a requirement.
