PREVIOUSLY, 4/10: A woman stripped down naked at Denver's International Airport on Tuesday morning.
KDVR reports that it's unclear why she stripped and if it was related to the smoking incident.
Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson said that it appeared to be "some sort of breakdown," but it had nothing to do with the ban, according to the Denver Channel.
The woman was not arrested, but instead taken to the hospital for evaluation.Passengers stripping at airports has happened in the past, though mostly in protest of the TSA. Tammy Banovac, a 52-year old, wheelchair-user from Oklahoma, stripped down to black lingerie to get through security at Will Rogers World Airport in 2010. And in November 2010, a college student stripped down to a Speedo to protest TSA pat downs.
