It’s Now OK to Be Nude at Oregon Airport

Calling all free-spirited travelers who fly the friendly skies. It is totally cool to get naked at the airport! No, I’m serious! But it’s only OK to bare it all if it’s in protest of TSA’s security policies. An Oregon judge handed down that message Wednesday when he ruled a Portland man, John Brennan, who did a striptease in a security line, was protected under free speech. The man was arrested in April after refusing a “nude” scan, opting instead for a pat-down.

When a TSA officer detected nitrates on his gloves, he became irritated and stripped off his clothes to show he wasn’t armed. Of course he was quickly moved from the line in handcuffs. Multnomah County Circuit Judge David Rees ruled Wednesday he was not guilty of indecent exposure.

MSN reported the police said:

“When interviewed about his actions, Mr. Brennan stated he fly’s (sic) a lot and had disrobed as a form of protest against TSA screeners who he felt were harassing him.”

Brennan was not intoxicated or under the influence of drugs at the time, but he refused the TSA’s repeated requests for him to put his clothing back on.
