Naked passenger causes concern on Alaska Airlines flight.

Passengers on an Alaska Airlines got an eyeful and far more than they bargained for on a flight from Seatle to Anchorage on Monday.  

An unidentified male passenger on flight 107 stripped off his clothes and ran up and down the aisle screaming and waving, before being tackled by fellow passengers and bundled into a toilet to restrain him.

At first many passengers were really scared, according to social media posts, however, once the man, estimated to be in his early twenties, had been restrained, they began to relax, with some even laughing. Daniel Roberts, a writer for Yahoo was on the flight and tweeted "Very scary at first. all are okay, many now laughing. guy is restrained in back of plane,"

An Alaska Airlines spokesperson has confirmed that a disruptive male passenger was detained during the flight but the plane landed without incident. Upon arrival at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, law enforcement officers took the man into custody. It's understood that he was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.
