Portion of airport closes after ‘disruptive’ man takes clothes off at RIC

Investigators blew up the unattended bags left by a man who became disruptive at RIC Tuesday evening.

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A section of Richmond International Airport closed for roughly two hours Tuesday evening after a man became disruptive and took off his clothes.

According to RIC spokesperson Troy Bell, a man entered the airport and wanted to buy a ticket with cash. He then became disruptive and stripped down to his underwear. Bell added there was a language barrier.

The man was taken by police for a mental evaluation.

The upper level drop off-zone at the airport was closed for roughly two hours while Henrico’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal team invested three bags the man left behind.
