Nude man arrested at Daytona Beach International Airport after issuing bomb threat

Naked man tells deputies he planted bomb at Daytona Beach airport; no explosive found

Volusia County deputies say the man was naked, and ran through the airport, into a restricted area.

"This is one of those things where truth is stranger than fiction, to say the least", Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood said.

Chitwood said John Greenwood, 25, was naked on the baggage carousel and yelled, "The bomb is going to go off".

The nude man didn't immediately respond to commands, so a deputy used a Taser on him. Greenwood told them he planted a bomb inside a female bathroom that was under construction, according to Sheriff Michael Chitwood. He took off his clothes, put them in a backpack and stuffed it into a hole in the sheetrock, Chitwood said.

The incident forced the closure of the airport while police searched for a bomb.

The airport was evacuated, but later resumed normal operations.

The body-camera video released by the Sheriff's Office shows the man sitting down near the carousel ignoring orders to lie down on his stomach.

'Fortunately for us, it was not a bomb, ' Chitwood said. The man had arrived at the airport with his clothes on but emerged from a bathroom naked, Chitwood said.

A man wearing only a pair of socks was shot with a stun gun and detained by police at Daytona Beach International Airport on Friday, May 11, after making reference to an explosion.

Deputies deployed their Tasers to subdue him after he got on the baggage carousel.

They found Greenwood in the baggage claim area. "Book me, but get me the hell out of here, please".

Greenwood eventually informed deputies he had ingested ecstasy and other drugs Thursday night.

Greenwood faces charges of burglary, false report concerning a bomb, criminal mischief, resisting arrest without violence, exposure of sexual organs and unlawful posession of someone else's identificaiton.

No flights were canceled, just rescheduled, and passengers had to wait outside the airport for about an hour and half, said Jay Cassens, an airport spokesman.

The man has at least twice before been taken into involuntary custody under the states Baker Act for mental evaluation, the Chitwood said.
