MANCHESTER, U.K. (CBS SF) – A man dressed in an Oakland Raiders shirt stripped naked on the tarmac and threatened to fight his plane’s pilot earlier this week.
According to a CBS Sports report, the man, who was described as drunk by fellow EasyJet passengers, got in an altercation during his flight. Upon landing, the man stripped down to his black underwear and continued to argue with the pilot on the tarmac.
The 52-year-old reportedly shouted “come on then” in a Manchester accent, trying to entice the pilot into a fist fight. As he continued to strip, a woman – believed to be his companion – came up and slapped him across the face.
The nude man later urinated on the side of the terminal building. Police used a stun-gun to subdue him after they arrived.
“The passenger had arrived into Manchester on flight EZY1328 from Malta,” EasyJet said in a statement after the incident. “The safety and security of its passengers and crew is EasyJet’s highest priority and, like all airlines, disruptive behavior is taken seriously…The passenger was met by the police as a result of his behavior.”
Information on any possible chargers against the man were not immediately available.
The news comes just days after the NFL announced that the Raiders would be playing a home game in London during the 2014 season.
