An Alaska Airlines flight from Anchorage to Seattle had to turn back around after a passenger locked himself in the bathroom and took off all his clothing.
The flight took off from Anchorage at 1:21 a.m. on Wednesday morning and returned back to the airport one hour and 20 minutes later. A spokesperson for the airline said the plane turned around because of a passenger not following flight attendants' instructions."
"While no emergency was declared, pilots made the decision to return to Anchorage," the spokesperson told local news channel KTVA. "Flight 146 arrived at Anchorage International around 2:45 a.m. and was met by law enforcement officers at the gate. The passenger was escorted off the flight by officers."
One passenger on the flight, Kate Danyluk, told Associated Press that police took the man out of the planes back door. Several other men stood nearby to shield the naked man from the view of other passengers. Danyluk said she heard he had taken off his clothes and he just wasnt in his right mind.

While its unclear whether or not the man was arrested, the airline did not press charges.
The plane, which was carrying 178 passengers, took off for a second time at 6:30 a.m. It arrived in Seattle at 10:44 a.m., about five hours after schedule.
Unclear if he was arrested? That's one you can take to the bank.
he should NEVER be allowed to fly again...at least not on Alaska!
Why are the people who take off their clothes the ones we’d least like to see nekkid?
Thought it was their Daily Nude Flight ,LOL
I fly Alaska when I head to canada. The most annoying part of the damn flight is the piped in instructions before take off. it’s in English AND Spanish. And the Spanish TAKES more MINUTES TO CONCLUDE. Now how many mexicans go to Vancouver?
Strap him to his seat with duct tape and continue to the destination.
Either alzheimers or a friend of mine would like to know what the drug is that induces women...er I mean people...to want to take off their clothes?
Why are they saying he was a man???
I know what some of you are thinking. But in these days of gender identity issues, how do we know he identifies as a man??
Why turn around? Seriously.
Ha, there’s a link to another airline that had someone get nekkid. Seems to be a rash of them.
Attendant, I’ll have whatever the naked guy’s having...................
Must be the peanuts.................
Uh...they have taken OVER our country!
I think we’ve all done that at least once.
If it was Mad Maxine or Jackson-Lee, I would kamikaze the airplane to get away.
I wasn't expecting puns on this thread.
Makes the user feel like they’re burning up.
We had a number of cases like this here in Maine a handful of years ago when bath salts were all the rage amongst drug users.
