NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Travelers at Nashville International Airport got quite the surprise when they saw a naked man walking around on Sunday. 

A man traveling from California to Nashville for business sent pictures of the incident to Channel 4. 

Tod Brilliant said what shocked him even more than the naked man was how calm other travelers were about the situation.

"I was pretty impressed with Nashville. Aside from a few people whose jaws were dropped, everyone else was doing their thing, going on business as usual. It was a great start to Nashville; it's a great city," Brilliant said.

A spokesperson from BNA said 53-year-old Eric Cherry was taken into custody for public indecency.

Cherry pleaded guilty to a similar case in 2009 after he was arrested naked in the airport’s economy parking lot.

Airport officials said he has been seen walking outside the airport without clothes on but never inside the terminal.
