A 23-year-old man was Tazed and taken into custody by Atlanta police Thursday morning after he allegedly stripped naked at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution police were called to Gate A21 around 6:30 a.m. after a ticketed passenger “suddenly appeared nude…and began yelling and acting erratically.”
Officers from the airport’s police precinct arrived “and attempted to speak with him and calm him down,” Jones said.
She said that when the man, identified as Derrick Weems, continued to act erratically, “officers used a Tazer to control the situation without a struggle, and for the safety of other passengers.”
Jones said Weems was charged with disorderly conduct and taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for evaluation.

When rescuers found a dog covered in tar in India, it was immobile like a statue, except for its eyes, which pleaded for help.
The stray dog had fallen into a pool of hot black tar and the material had hardened on it like a shell.
Rescuers from Animal Aid Unlimited used a simple, yet effective method to remove the tar from the dog’s body, but it was a painstaking process. Massaging vegetable oil by hand into the dog’s fur, the rescuers were able to soften the tar and remove it. It took two days to remove all of the tar.
All of the effort of the rescuers paid off, as the dog has now fully recovered.
BART has a new plan to help riders who face problems finding parking spots at station garages. More than 400,000 riders use BART every day but the system has just 4,600 parking spots to offer.
BART plans to use improved technology to make sure commuters don’t waste their time searching for a spot at station garages that often fill up fast in the mornings.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the plan is to install more signs to alert drivers when all the daily use spots are gone.
The signs work in conjunction with sensors in all the parking spots. Just two stations are currently using the technology.
According to the report by the San Francisco Chronicle the agency is planning to install parking garage alert signs at four more stations within the year.
BART is also considering using text or email alerts to let riders know if a particular garage is full.
