Nudity leads to landing

A passenger who stripped naked aboard a Los Angeles-bound US Airways jet, forcing its diversion to Albuquerque, will be arraigned today and possibly ordered to undergo a psychiatric examination, the FBI said Wednesday.

Keith Anthony Wright, 50, of New York was in federal detention in New Mexico pending his appearance in court on charges of interference with a flight, said FBI spokesman Darrin Jones in Albuquerque. "He removed his clothing during the flight and refused to put them back on," Jones said of the disruption aboard US Airways Flight 705 on Tuesday. The crew was simultaneously dealing with an unrelated medical emergency on board when authorities ordered the plane to land. The flight originated in Charlotte, N.C.
