The Australian Police has arrested a man accused of running naked down the aisle of a domestic flight, knocking down one of the crew members and forcing the plane to turn back, an official said on Tuesday.

The incident took place not so long after the flight took off, which was supposed to be a three-hour-and-thirty-minute journey from Perth to Melbourne on Monday night.

“The flight took off from Perth Airport at around 7.20 pm local time and turned back less than an hour later due to a disruptive passenger on board,” Virgin Australia said in an official statement.

Upon arrival, Australian Federal Police officers were on hand, and “the disruptive guest was offloaded,” the airline said.

According to officials, the accused was arrested after he allegedly ran naked through the aircraft mid-flight, knocked a crew member to the floor and forced the plane to be turned back.

No passenger was injured in the incident and the plane landed safely in Perth, officials said.

An Australian Federal Police spokesperson said it received the call for assistance from airline staff at Perth Airport and was prepared to respond.

The accused was later sent to a hospital for assessment.

Police are yet to frame charges against the man, who is expected to be summoned to appear in Perth Magistrates Court on June 14.

Further investigation into the matter is underway.
