Naked passenger forces Alaska Airlines flight to return to Anchorage

An Alaska Airlines flight traveling from Anchorage to Seattle was forced to return to Alaska on Wednesday morning after a naked passenger barricaded himself inside one of the plane's bathrooms.

An Alaska Airlines flight traveling from Anchorage to Seattle was forced to return to Alaska on Wednesday morning after a naked passenger barricaded himself inside one of the plane's bathrooms.

According to KTVA, airport policemen and FBI agents responded to Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport at around 3 a.m. after the disturbance forced Flight 146 to return to its port of departure.

"There was a subject on the aircraft that had barricaded or locked himself in the bathroom, the lavatory," Fire Sargent Darcey Perry told the station. "Flight attendants did find that the subject was naked."

Footage allegedly taken inside of the plane shows groggy passengers aboard Flight 146 after it landed back in Anchorage, waiting to deplane with their luggage.


Chloe Martin, a spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney for Alaska Bryan Schroder, told KTVA that no charges have yet been filed against the unruly passenger.
