Woman Strips Naked On DIA Concourse

Passenger Appears To Have Breakdown, Police Say

A woman at Denver International Airport stunned onlookers Tuesday when she stripped naked on Concourse B, authorities said.

The incident happened at about 8:45 a.m. after the woman was caught smoking in a non-smoking area near gate B-81, airport spokeswoman Jenny Schiavone said.

Someone told the woman she couldn’t smoke there and she put out the cigarette, Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson said.

Then the woman proceeded to take off all of her clothes, Schiavone said.

"It appears to be some sort of a breakdown," said Jackson, adding that the disrobing had nothing to do with the smoking ban.

The woman wasn't arrested, Jackson said. Instead, paramedics transported her to a local hospital for a medical evaluation.

TheDenverChannel has blurred her photograph to protect her identity.
