Melbourne, Nov 22 (ANI): A traveller has been arrested for shedding his clothes in a bid to avoid being frisked by airport staff.

Sam Wolanyk was planning to fly to Barbados but declined to go through the full-body scanner, reported the San Diego Union-Tribune.

He was then singled out for a pat-down search instead. Wolanyk allegedly stripped down to his underwear instead, said his lawyer Jason Davis of Orange Country.

"It was obvious that my underwear left nothing to the imagination," quoted Wolanyk, as saying.

"I was not willing to be molested again.

"I figured that this way everyone would be happy: I don't get scanned or groped, they can verify that I'm not a danger to anyone and the line would actually move more quickly because those pat-downs take time," he said.

Wolanyk will appear in court on January 7 next year. (ANI)
