Keith Wright, 50, of New York, was arrested by two off-duty law enforcement officers who were on board the plane.
He took all his clothes off while sitting in his seat in the back of Flight 705 from North Carolina to Los Angeles on Tuesday evening. There were 148 passengers on board the plane.
When a flight attendant asked him to put his clothes back on, he did not respond. 'She asked him on more than one occasion to put on his clothes. She covered him with a blanket and he took that off,' a spokesman said.
Wright - who told the FBI he suffers from bi-polar disorder and had not taken his medication that morning - then punched and kicked the flight attendant.
She asked two off-duty law officers for help, according to a criminal complaint.
A Los Angeles police officer and sheriff's deputy helped the flight attendant subdue and handcuff Wright before the flight landed.
