ROMULUS (WWJ) - A traveler caused quite a stir at Detroit Metro Airport when he stripped naked and tried to pass through security at the McNamara Terminal.

Airport officials say the man walked up to a checkpoint around 6:30 a.m. Friday, removed all of his clothing, disconnected a stanchion and approached a metal detector. TSA agents did not allow him to pass through the checkpoint.

"The Wayne County Airport Authority's police and fire departments responded and determined the man did not pose a security threat," Erica Donerson, a spokesperson for the Wayne County Airport Authority. 

Donerson said the man was transported to an area hospital.

No injuries were reported, but several people witnessed the incident.
