A passenger who was on the Los Angeles-bound US Airways flight that had to be diverted due to a naked man on board talks about his experience.Keith Wright, a 50-year-old from New York City, is facing charges of disorderly conduct after stripping naked mid-flight.

He allegedly kicked and punched a flight attendant.

An off-duty LAPD officer and a sheriff's deputy, who just happened to be on the flight, helped subdue him.

"As it kept going, I got a little scared. When they said there was a naked man in the back, I didn't get as scared. I just kinda thought, this is odd. This is really odd," said Justin.

The plane was diverted to Albuquerque, where Wright was taken into custody.

The flight continued on to Los Angeles.

Authorities speculate that Wright had not taken his medication for a bipolar disorder.
