The Oregon man arrived at the airport on April 17, and says he went nude to protest TSA security measures. While going through the checkpoint, the TSA agent detected nitrates, so the man took off his clothes — all of them.

He faced charges of indecent exposure in court, with prosecutors arguing that if his actions are protected by the First Amendment, then anyone arrested while nude could also claim they were just protesting something.

But despite that argument, the judge found him not guilty, calling his nudity an act of protected speech.
