Police will only tolerate so many drunken antics. At airports, the limit is reached quickly when alcohol and nudity appear to be involved.

A 52-year-old passenger aboard an easyJet flight was shocked with a stun gun in late September after he allegedly challenged the pilot of the plane to a fight on the tarmac. A fellow passenger told the Times of Malta the erratic behavior started mid-flight, when the man started swearing at other travelers.

The man was en route to Manchester, England, from Malta, on easyJet flight 1328.

"He must have been drunk because when he came off the plane, he took his top off and shouted ‘come on then’ in a Manchester accent and was trying to get the captain to fight him," an onlooker, who asked not to be named, told the Manchester Evening News. “Then he carried on taking all his clothes off. I have no idea why.

A police spokesman told the Independent that after the man proceeded to pee on a wall at the airport, he was tasered by police and arrested. He has been charged with "being drunk and disorderly in a public place."

An easyJet spokesman added to The Telegraph, "The safety and security of its passengers and crew is easyJet’s highest priority and, like all airlines, disruptive behaviour is taken seriously."
