DENVER – A female passenger at Denver International Airport caused a commotion Tuesday morning when she stripped naked inside Concourse B, airport officials said.
The incident happened at about 8:45 a.m. when, according to DIA spokeswoman Jenny Schiavone, the woman was caught smoking a cigarette at gate B81 in a non-smoking area.
At some point after airport workers told her to extinguish the cigarette, the woman took off her clothing. It wasn’t immediately clear why. However, Denver Police say it was unrelated to the smoking issue.
One witness, who did not want his name used, says other passengers on the concourse didn’t find the striptease amusing.
“Most were shocked,” he told FOX31 Denver. “No one really noticed her at first because people were trying to get to their planes. Then, everyone realized she was just standing there completely naked.”
The whole incident played-out over a span of about 20 minutes before authorities eventually transported the woman to a hospital, Schiavone said.
Denver Police say the woman will not be arrested and she will not face any charges.
