A man traveling from Seattle to Anchorage via an Alaska Airlines flight was tackled after he began running from the front of the plane to the back naked, waving and yelling.

According to The Associated Press, former Alaska state Sen. Johnny Ellis was onboard the aircraft and watched the situation unfold. Ellis tweeted that two large men tackled the naked man and locked him in the bathroom.
