Naked Man Arrested on Virgin Australia Flight to Melbourne

Passengers on a Virgin Australia flight from Perth to Melbourne experienced an unexpected and
chaotic scene when a naked man ran through the aisle, knocking a crew member to the floor.
The incident occurred on Flight VA696, which subsequently returned to Perth due to the
disruptive passenger, as confirmed by a Virgin Australia spokesperson. The man was handed
over to Australian Federal Police upon landing.

The flight, originally scheduled for a three-and-a-half-hour journey, turned back about an hour
and a half into the trip, according to FlightAware. The Australian Federal Police reported that
the man was arrested and taken to the hospital for evaluation. The specific charges he will face
have not been determined yet, but he is expected to appear in court next month.
Virgin Australia issued an apology to the affected passengers for the disruption.
