PORTLAND, Ore.—An Oregon man kept his clothes on when he went through court security on his way to his trial, unlike the episode that got him there: stripping at Portland’s airport to protest security measures he found invasive.

John Brennan, of Portland, took the stand Wednesday in his trial on charges of indecent exposure. He says he went nude at the airport on April 17 to protest the Transportation Security Administration’s security procedures.

After a TSA agent at the airport detected nitrates, Brennan took of his clothes.

A Multnomah County prosecutor says if Brennan’s actions are considered protected by the First Amendment, then anyone who is arrested while nude can also claim that their actions are a protest.

Brennan’s trial continued Wednesday afternoon.
