Man Arrested At Airport For Wearing Too Many Clothes

Ryan Carney Williams, known on his Twitter account as Ryan Hawaii, was barred entry to the terminal after he tried to get around luggage rules by wearing it. Williams was wearing eight pairs of trousers and 10 shirts.

He posted two videos asking the employees why he wasn't allowed to board, to which one of the airline staff responded: 'Do we need to call the police?' "I haven't done anything wrong".

Ryan Carney Williams' horrific tale of being stranded at an airport in Iceland for wearing several items of clothing that wouldn't fit in his checked baggage has gone viral, garnering global attention.

"My sister-in-law booked my flight because I was flat broke from being homeless in Iceland", he claims.

The Iceland Monitor reported Hawaii was turned away after being disruptive, with a video he posted on Twitter showing airport security approaching him and telling him not to film them.

After being released from the police, he attempted to return to England, this time on an EasyJet flight.

He tweeted: "And again!"

"I asked POLITELY if I could wear all the clothes in my case and still board".

Hawaii was reportedly then prevented from boarding an EasyJet flight the following day after the second airline heard about the previous day's drama. He just put on all his clothes instead. When he came back to the desk, he "was still refused [his] boarding pass", Hawaii wrote in a tweet. "Police were called. I spoke to 2 very polite officers explained my story".

British Airways said Ryan was turned away for being rude and later called security when he refused to leave the desk, according to Icelandic news site, Mbl.

A British Airways spokeswoman told The Washington Post that customers who book "hand baggage only fares" can choose to pay a fee at the airport if they end up needing an extra bag.

They told Metro: "We give our customers a wide range of fares to choose from to meet their needs".

"We explained our policy to our customer, and arranged an alternative flight to London", the spokesman said.
