Travelers making their way through Nashville International Airport Sunday were forced to deal with a naked man who was walking around the facility before being arrested.

According to WSMV-TV in Nashville, the naked man was identified as 53-year-old Eric Cherry by a Nashville Airport spokesperson, and he was arrested by police for public indecency shortly after employees at the facility saw him walking around nude.

Authorities revealed that Cherry had pleaded guilty in 2009 to public indecency after he was arrested for walking around the Nashville Airport’s economy parking lot naked. Officials at the airport have allegedly seen the man walking around naked outside, but he had never made it inside the facility before.

A passenger traveling through the airport named Tod Brilliant told WSMV-TV, “I was pretty impressed with Nashville. Aside from a few people whose jaws were dropped, everyone else was doing their thing, going on business as usual. It was a great start to Nashville; it's a great city.”
