A domestic flight in Australia was forced to turn back shortly after take-off after a man was running around naked through the cabin, knocking down a flight attendant. The man was then arrested at the airport, officials said on Tuesday.
The incident took place on a 3 hour and 30 minute Virgin Australia flight on Monday night. The flight was departing from Perth to Melbourne Flight VA696 returned to Perth Airport due to a “disruptive passenger,” the airline statement said.
Australian Federal Police met the officials when the flight returned to Perth airport and “the disruptive guest was offloaded,” the airline said. However, it was not clear that when and where on the plane the passenger removed his clothes.
The police said that the incident was reported by the airport staff. “Officers arrested a man after he allegedly ran naked through the aircraft mid-flight and knocked a crew member to the floor,” they said.
A passenger on the plane, Sterling, said that within an hour of the flight, "all of a sudden I hear this running up the aisle and the guy's got no clothes on and he's just charging towards the front of the plane,” The Guardian reported.
The man who was arrested was then sent to a nearby hospital for assessment, where he remained on Tuesday night, the police said in a statement. The police expect to order the man by summons to appear in a Perth court in June. Although what charges he will face are yet to be finalised.
Followed by this the airline apologised to the passengers impacted, adding the safety of passengers and crew was its top priority. Both the airline and police declined comment beyond their statements.
