Jimmy Wayne's Near-Naked Airport Incident
The singer was scheduled to catch a flight from Oakland International Airport to his native Nashville on Thursday when he repeatedly set off the metal detector at the terminal's entrance.
And the star, who admits he was tired after catching little sleep, thought he was asked by the security guard to "take off his shorts."
He tells People.com, "I kept trying to get through and it would go off. Finally the TSA officer said something to the effect of, 'Remove your shorts,' and I thought to myself, 'Now that sounds a little weird, but I guess it's okay-- I mean they show guys in boxers in the Sunday paper ads, right? I guess maybe between not having enough sleep and not understanding him ... I don't know. I did it!"
But the guard's reaction made it obvious Wayne had misunderstood his request-- he immediately called for back-up to help restrain the star.
Wayne explains, "He (guard) flipped! I ran back to the belt-- I thought I could grab my shorts real fast-- but the belt sucked the shorts up in the X-ray into the other side. So now I'm stuck in my boxers and everyone's staring."
Wayne was handcuffed by the back-up officers and questioned for 25 minutes as passers-by snapped him on their cell phones.
He was later released but admits he was scared of the consequences of his risque actions.
He adds, "I was scared to death because I thought they were going to take me to jail. Don't mess with Oakland and watch out where you take your clothes off!"
