Ms Ketchie said the man became outraged and began screaming at the airport staffers.

"He had his clothes on, at that point, and then he started standing there with his arms crossed and hollering at the lady at the desk," she said. "He stood there for a moment and then started taking off his clothes. I ain't never seen nothing [like that] in my life."

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have described the event as a “medical issue” and the man will not face criminal charges.
