A Leipzig man was forced to traipse through the Munich Airport naked after an enraged taxi driver took all of his possessions when he couldn't pay his entire fare, daily Bild reported on Friday.

The chef Frank E. had been in Munich to visit a nightclub on Monday for business. On his way back to the airport in a taxi, he realised he only had €60 in cash, which did not cover the €64.20 fare the driver demanded.

“He took both my mobile phones, all of my identification and my keys,” he told the paper. “Then I had to strip down naked. He also took my underwear and glasses!”

At 2 am Frank E. approached a cleaning crew in Terminal 2 at the airport with only a newspaper to cover himself.

“They made a kind of skirt for me out of a trash bag,” he told the paper.

Police at the airport later gave him jogging pants and a t-shirt for his flight home.

The taxi driver has not yet been found, but the authorities are investigating the incident as theft.
