A naked woman was arrested for hanging around Orlando International Airport on Friday afternoon, according to the folks at Fox News. After being spotted wandering around the first level of the airport, the woman and her birthday suit were wrangled by police and taken into custody.
In order to make sure that she isn’t stark raving mad or high on some sort of illegal drug, the naked woman has been taken to Florida Hospital East for observation under the state’s Baker Act. Her name has been withheld from the public. Presently, it’s unclear why the 50-year-old woman was hanging around the airport or why she decided to leave her clothes in the parking garage.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that the naked woman arrive at the Orlando airport around 1 pm. Not surprisingly, it didn’t take long for people to spot the nude lady wandering around. Before long, police and security were flooded with calls about the naked woman.
“Our dispatch calls kind of lit up,” Orlando police Lieutenant Gary Hayes explained. “She said something about Jesus making her do it.”
It’s doubtful that the naked woman was using her nudity to protest security methods employed by the Transportation Security Administration. In April, a 50-year-old Utah man who claimed he was being harassed by TSA agents decided to strip naked inside the airport in protest. Security, of course, wasn’t too impressed with his conduct.
“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,” the police report stated.
Although John E. Brennan, loving dubbed the “naked airport guy,” was charged with indecent exposure for his actions, a judge later ruled that his nudity was protected by the first amendment. However, it’s doubtful that the naked woman was doing anything other than being naked at the Orlando airport.
