Naked drunk passenger Tasered by police after challenging flight captain to a fight
Tattooed 52-year-old was caught on video stripping, shouting and remonstrating after stepping off the easyJet flight
Video footage has emerged of the moment a drunken man was Tasered by police after stripping naked and confronting staff on the runway of Manchester Airport.
The 52-year-old man was filmed stripping to his underwear, remonstrating and being slapped across the face by a female companion, after stepping off the easyJet flight from Malta to Manchester.
The man also challenged the flight captain attempting to calm him down to a fight, the Manchester Evening News has reported.
After removing his underpants, the passenger then proceeded to urinate on the side of the Terminal One building at Manchester Airport.
He eventually put his clothes back on and headed towards the baggage collection area, but was caught by police who tried to control him using a “dry” Taser when he refused to co-operate. Electronic stun guns are held against a target to cause shock and pain.
The man was subsequently arrested and issued an on-the-spot fine.
A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said: “At 9.50am on Thursday September 26 2013, police were called to Terminal One arrivals of Manchester Airport following reports a man was drunk and being abusive to passengers on a flight from Malta.
“As he left the plane, he took his clothes off and urinated against a wall.
“A 52-year-old man was stunned using an electronic stun gun and arrested on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly in a public place. He was issued a fixed penalty notice.”
An easyJet spokesperson told the Manchester Evening News: “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.”
