Man arrested for running naked through Sky Harbor Airport
PHOENIX (abc15)– A 27-year-old man, who ran naked through terminal two at Sky Harbor Airport Friday afternoon, said he is bi-polar and was off his medication.
An ABC15 crew, at the airport for another story, caught video of Daniel Green as he was taken into custody.
According to police, the chaos began when Green stopped his car in front of the terminal, leaving it in ‘drive,’ began taking off his clothes and threw a small knife on the ground.
Witnesses say he then went inside and started yelling near the ticket counter.
Kim Thomkinson said, “he was knocking everything over, and just stripped naked, I don’t know why.”
“Before the cops were able to arrest him, he was able to get his underwear off and give everyone a little show,” Oshan Thomas said.
Officers took Green to a restroom where they draped a yellow hazmat bag over him and took him into custody.
Green is now facing charges of reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct and indecent exposure.
No one was injured during the incident and it didn’t disrupt any flights.
