Portland Man Literally Shows TSA Screeners What S.F. Nudists Won't
|Now that's explosive|
Well, it seems a Portland computer programmer showed us -- literally. According to press reports, 49-year-old John Brennan, who was bound for San Jose yesterday evening, disrobed for TSA authorities as he went through the airport security line at the Portland International Airport.
Brennan was in line at about 5:35 p.m. getting screened for his Alaskan Airlines flight to San Jose when he removed his clothing "as a form of protest against TSA screeners who he felt were harassing him."
"The machine went off and I asked what it was and he said nitrates, which I know from Oklahoma City is one of the explosive ingredients," Brennan told NewsChannel 8. "And I was not interested in being hassled, so I took my clothes [off] to show I was not carrying any explosives."
Amused passengers snapped photos of a bare-chested Brennan while security officials harassed Brennan, asking him to put his clothes back on. When Brennan refused, police arrested him on suspicion of indecent exposure.
Incidentally, authorities never did find an explosive device on him.
