Naked Man Jumped Fence at Miami International Airport, Said He Wanted to Go Back to Cuba: MDPD

A naked man who hopped a fence at Miami International Airport said he did so because he wanted to go back to Cuba, according to police.

Ricardo Nogales, 47, was arrested Wednesday afternoon on a breach of security charge after he jumped the perimeter fence at MIA and entered the restricted airfield area, according to a Miami-Dade Police arrest report.

Nogales was booked into jail and it's unknown if he's hired an attorney. The report said he is Cuban and unemployed.

According to the report, officers found Nogales naked and trying to enter an airport hangar. He said he jumped the fence because he wanted to go back to Cuba, the report said.

The 8-foot high fence had barbwire and multiple "No Trespassing" signs, the report said.
