A 49-year-old Oregon man thought the best way for him to protest the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Tuesay was to strip down completely naked at the airport, according to KATU-TV.

John Brennan was arrested by authorities after refusing requests from the TSA to put his clothes back on. Brennan’s actions forced some passengers to cover both their eyes and their children’s eyes while others laughed and staring taking pictures.

Brennan was scheduled to fly to San Jose, California and was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol during the incident. He is in jail held on $4,000 bail.
