BathroomA naked man, who was allegedly spying on a woman's restroom at Logan Airport in Boston, was arrested on Saturday -- but that is not the half of it. According to police, the 26-year-old crashed through the ceiling of the bathroom into one of its stalls. Next, he emerged from the restroom, naked and bleeding like a scene from a horror movie, and viciously assaulted an 84-year-old gentleman by biting the man's ear and choking him with his cane.

26-Year-Old Faces Numerous Charges

The nude man was immediately taken into custody by authorities on a variety of violent crime charges, but not without putting up a fight. His charges include: mayhem, attempted murder, assault and battery of an officer, assault and battery of an individual over the age of 60, malicious destruction of property and lewd and lascivious behavior.

The crazy scene happened a little before 12 p.m. Authorities allege that the man snuck into a woman's bathroom near the TSA checkpoint in Terminal C. He disrobed in a stall and crawled into the ceiling over the restroom to spy on people. Police do not know why -- after he crashed through the ceiling -- he came out of the bathroom and attacked the elderly man.

Fortunately, everyone involved in the incident survived with non-serious injuries. The 84-year-old man was rushed to the hospital to receive treatment for his bitten ear. The 26-year-old attacker was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was receiving treatment for injuries under police custody. The arresting officer -- who had to fight the man to subdue him -- required treatment for a hand injury.

Even This Man Is Entitled to a Criminal Defense

As crazy and bizarre as this incident sounds, even if all the facts reported by news media are completely true, the accused man in this case will be entitled to a criminal defense and he may be able to better his situation considerably during his criminal proceedings.

Was this man psychologically stable? Anyone who would carry out such bizarre behavior may not have been "right" in the head. Therefore, his defense attorney may wish to order psychological tests and evaluations to determine if his client's actions were the result of temporary or permanent insanity. If the man does indeed suffer from a diagnosable psychological condition, then his arrest could be viewed as a positive because a judge can order that he receive the medical treatment he needs, while detaining him at a facility that will keep him from harming himself and assaulting others.
