RICHMOND, Virginia (AP), Dec 31 - Police say a man stripped to his underwear at an airport checkpoint in Virginia in a protest against security procedures.
Airport police said the man took off his shirt and trousers at Richmond International Airport on Thursday. He had scrawled across his chest a reference to the U.S. Constitution's protections against unreasonable search and seizure.
Police identified the man as 21-year-old Aaron B. Tobey of Chalottesville, Virginia. He told police he was a student at the University of Cincinnati.
Tobey was interviewed by airport police and federal authorities, issued a citation for disorderly conduct and released. He is scheduled for arraignment on Jan. 10.
