The concourse at Daytona Beach International Airport

A naked man screamed "a bomb is about to go off" after running out of a women's restroom at Daytona Beach International Airport on Friday morning and trying to crawl through the opening of a baggage carousel.

John Greenwood, 25, was taken into custody and transported to Halifax Health Medical Center, where the sheriff said he is resting "comfortably".

"Greenwood went to the baggage claim area, where he was encountered on the run by responding deputies", Gant said in a press release. Greenwood told them he planted a bomb inside a female bathroom that was under construction, according to Sheriff Michael Chitwood. The bomb squad determined there was no bomb.

The airport was evacuated, but later resumed normal operations.

As News4Jax reported, records show that Greenwood is awaiting trial stemming from a 2017 arrest for battery on a first responder.

'Fortunately for us, it was not a bomb, ' Chitwood said.

They found Greenwood in the baggage claim area.

In this video, the naked man can be heard saying "the place is going to blow up".

Castellanos was hit by a pitch in the first inning of the second game of Saturday's doubleheader , and he left soon after that. The Tigers' hitters have been led by third baseman Jeimer Candelario and right fielder Nicholas Castellanos .

After he was detained, the unclad man told a deputy: "I just want to get out of here, bro".

According to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office, no explosives were found and the man admitted to having ingested ecstasy and "a bunch of other drugs" the night before.

Deputies informed the man that he needed to wait to have the Taser barbs removed.

Greenwood didn't immediately respond to commands, so a deputy used a Taser on him, the Sheriff's Office said. "I was about 10 minutes from boarding when they told us to evacuate".

Greenwood faces charges of burglary, making a false bomb report, criminal mischief, resisting without violence, exposure of sexual organs and unlawful possession of another person's identification.

Airport spokesman Jay Cassens confirmed with Spectrum News 13 that travelers were outside of the airport for an hour and a half.

Previous to Friday's arrest, Greenwood has been taken into involuntary custody under the state's Baker Act for mental evaluation at least twice, the sheriff said.
