Naked man arrested for “pleasuring himself”, attacking cops and threatening to kill TSA agents in Minneapolis Airport

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – A man who was in the Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport claims he was suffering from a mental health incident after being accused of stripping down and pleasing himself there.

He allegedly told Transportation Security Administration Officials and police officers that it was a free country.

TSA Agents attempted to stop the suspect, identified as 44-year-old Frank Towers, from entering a secure area of the airport on November 12th. Towers allegedly did not appreciate being stopped and began telling officials that he did not have to do so because it was a free country.

As TSA agents worked to calm Towers, he allegedly became irate and picked up a stanchion line and threw it at them. Then, for whatever reason, Towers stripped down and began masturbating in front of everyone in the airport.

While pleasuring himself, TSA Agents worked to stop him, and Towers began allegedly threatening to kill them. He was ordered by Agents several times to stop and move away from the secured area and he refused to cooperate.

According to charging documents, after repeated attempts and orders to get Towers to move voluntarily failed, TSA Agents deployed a Taser to gain compliance. Instead of complying, Towers swung his arms over his head and allegedly attempted to strike an officer who was now at the security point.

Officers moved in and had to physically take Towers to the ground before they were able to take him into custody. After Towers was secured and removed from the airport, police officers began reviewing video surveillance to determine what Towers was doing before the encounter.

Police charged Towers with fourth-degree assault against a peace officer and threats of violence. Both of the criminal charges are considered felonies in the State of Minnesota.

As police reviewed the surveillance, they observed Towers allegedly walking around different areas of the airport while punching and headbutting television screens. At another point, he was seen walking through the airport masturbating, throwing a chair, and then got dressed.

The arresting officers did not make specific mention of any type of mental health diagnosis that Towers may have, but they did note Towers has had similar incidents in the past.

The other unrelated criminal cases in which Towers has been charged have occurred in Olmstead County. There he has three separate criminal charges, some of which Towers is accused of having similar behaviors as described in his recent arrest.

In April of 2020, Towers alleged attacked a roommate during an argument. Towers were alleged to have thrown a knife at the roommate and then a hammer at him. Towers allegedly told investigating officers that he should have “killed” the victim.

In May of 2018, Towers was apparently at his house and during an argument with a guest, he allegedly swung a hammer and struck him on the side of the head. As officers responded to the scene, then allegedly began throwing multiple items at them, including a fire extinguisher.

Finally, in June of 2018, while Towers was in custody, presumably for the above case, he began a dispute with correction deputies inside of the Olmstead County Jail.

Towers alleged began spitting on the deputies and then threw urine-soaked toilet paper at them before they were able to get control.

Towers stood trial on the criminal charges against him in June of 2020 but the court found that he was mentally incompetent. Therefore, they had him civilly committed to a mental health facility and ordered him to have regular competency evaluations scheduled.

No information has been released at this time that would indicate how, and why Towers was released from a mental health facility.

Naked woman spotted walking around Denver airport asking people where they were from

Editor note: In 2020, we saw a nationwide push to “defund the police”.  While we all stood here shaking our heads wondering if these people were serious… they cut billions of dollars in funding for police officers.  And as a result, crime has skyrocketed – all while the same politicians who said “you don’t need guns, the government will protect you” continued their attacks on both our police officers and our Second Amendment rights.

And that’s exactly why we’re launching this national crowdfunding campaign as part of our efforts to help “re-fund the police”.

DENVER, CO – Denver International Airport was the site of an unusual occurrence back in September, as authorities responded to the airport over reports of a naked woman wandering around and asking people where they were from.

 

The incident occurred on September 19th at approximately 5:00 a.m. near Gate A-37. Police were informed of the woman strolling around unclad, noting in their report that the woman was “having some type of medical issue” by the time they caught up with her.

Reportedly, the woman was captured on video asking bystanders “How are you doing? Where are you from?”

While police were attempting to get her covered up, she at one point allegedly began to skip away from the officers. Paramedics were eventually called to the scene, and she was transported to University Hospital by ambulance due to the undisclosed medical episode.

Based upon the circumstances, it appears that the woman is not facing any sort of criminal charges.

Denver International Airport nor police have provided any additional comment on the matter.

As bizarre as it may seem, this isn’t the first time that Denver International Airport experienced an incident involving a woman stripping naked.

Back in April of 2012, a woman was spotted at Gate B-81 smoking a cigarette in a non-smoking area. When airline staff told the woman to put out her cigarette, she instead decided to remove all of her clothing.

The incident lasted for approximately 20 minutes before authorities arrived on scene and transported the woman to an area hospital. In said case, the woman was not criminally charged nor formally arrested due to the incident purportedly being linked to a medical episode as well.
