Naked man held at airport for ‘throwing poo’ after ‘viagra overdose’

Steve Cho, 27, from New York, had been waiting for a flight to Incheon, South Korea when he stripped off in the departures hall at Phuket International Airport on Thursday.

The crazed holidaymaker terrified onlookers as he rampaged through shops destroying goods and yelling incoherently – before throwing his own poo at staff and people.

Six security guards along with airport staff finally pounced on Steve, of Korean descent, before the airport’s tourist police arrested him.

Onlooker Wannee Ming, 28, said: “This was the scariest and most disgusting thing I ever saw at an airport. I stayed away from the man in case he attacked anybody.

“The airport staff tried to make him calm down. They were talking to him but he ignored them. It was very bad. The airport did a good job to control him [sic].”

The naked holidaymaker told officers he had “taken too many sex drugs” and apologised for the naked outburst.

He agreed to pay for any damages.

A statement from Phuket International Airport said that man admitted “taking too many Viagra drugs”.

The statement said: “To control the situation and to prevent any danger that might happen to other passengers, the officers had to arrest the man.

“The officers brought him to the walkway on the north side of the terminal to avoid other passengers and managed to calm him down at the tourist centre on the first floor.

“When he regained his composure he admitted that he took too many viagra pills and lost consciousness. He accepted responsibility to reimburse for any damages that he caused. His trip to Incheon was cancelled and he was brought to Saku Police Station for further investigation.”

Steve was taken to the local police station before officers sent him to a nearby hospital for medical checks and a routine psychiatric assessment.

This comes the same day an United Airlines aircraft was forced to land after on-board toilets were vandalised with poo.

The plane from Chicago to Hong Kong and had to divert its course to Alaska when an US resident of Vietnamese origin “smeared faeces everywhere.”

The man was let off without any charges.
