A western man went streaking at Beijing Capital International airport on Tuesday afternoon after arguing with another passenger over seats, Chinese media reported on Wednesday.

The man had allegedly occupied two seats on an airport shuttle train. He had refused to let a Chinese passenger sit down and got into an altercation with him, the report said.

The man, who was about 1.75 metres tall, then ran around the airport’s departure hall after exiting the train.

The police caught him a few minutes and covered him with a blanket.

The man was found to be suffering from schizophrenia and sent to a hospital, the report added.
