Naked Man Found Swimming Next To JFK Airport Fuel Farm

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Authorities say a man was found swimming naked in a waterway next to the fuel farm of New York’s Kennedy Airport.

A spokesman for the airport’s operator, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, says airport patrols spotted the swimmer Tuesday morning.

The spokesman, Steven Coleman, says the man ran toward the fuel farm when the patrols approached. He was caught near a boat dock and never entered the restricted area.

The man was taken to a hospital for psychiatric evaluation. He has been charged with criminal trespass, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

Perimeter security plans are the airports’ responsibility, but they’re approved by the Transportation Security Administration.
