What would late country singer Johnny Cash have to say about this?

The “Cry, Cry, Cry” crooner’s son, John Carter Cash, was arrested on Monday, Oct. 27 for stripping down to his underwear at Canada's Deer Lake Airport, CBC reports.

Deer Lake Royal Canadian Mounted Police told the outlet that Cash, 44, (son of Johnny and wife June Carter Cash) was in Newfoundland for a hunting trip and was trying to return home from the excursion.

Police were called when Cash stripped down to his underwear in the middle of the airport. Officers were informed the man was either drunk or suffering from medical issues, and had missed his flight.

On arrival at the airport, the RCMP were told by security that Cash had been persuaded to put his clothes back on, and that he had indeed drunk too much alcohol.

The country scion was released when sober, and allowed to take a flight home the following morning without charges. Police said he was cooperative with them and security, and has no previous criminal record.

Johnny Cash died in Nashville in September 2003 aged 71, after complications from diabetes. His death came just four months after the passing his wife June.
