Man strips at RIC checkpoint in protest

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Police say a man stripped to his underwear at a Richmond International Airport checkpoint in a protest against security procedures.

Airport police said the man took off his shirt and pants at RIC on Dec. 30. He had scrawled across his chest a reference to the Constitution's 4th Amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizure.

Police identified the man as 21-year-old Aaron B. Tobey of Charlottesville. He told police he was a student at the University of Cincinnati.

Tobey was interviewed by airport police and federal authorities, issued a citation for disorderly conduct and released. He is scheduled for arraignment on Jan. 10.
