American Tourist Who Overdosed On Viagra Walks Naked, Throws Poo In Thai Airport

Close

An American tourist has been arrested by local police authorities after going on a naked rampage at Phuket International Airport in Thailand.

Steve Cho, a 27-year-old resident of New York, strolled around the airport's departure hall without any clothes on while screaming unintelligibly and throwing his feces at horrified onlookers.

Cho was eventually restrained by six security officers, but before then, he had already destroyed goods in several airport shops.

Authorities canceled his flight to Incheon as he was taken to the Saku Police Station for further investigation. He was later forwarded to a nearby hospital for routine medical checks and psychiatric assessment.

Tourist High On Viagra Admits Being Unconscious During Rampage

Phuket International Airport's security department reveals that Cho was actually high during his outburst. Apparently, the tourist had overdosed on sex drugs, including Viagra, causing him to lose consciousness.

The airport security also says that Cho accepted responsibility to pay for damages he caused while stressing that its personnel followed strict protocol in making the arrest and that no harm was made to the tourist.

"Officers brought him to the walkway on the north side of the terminal to avoid other passengers and managed to calm him down at the Tourist Center on the first floor," clarified the airport security.

Generic Viagra Launches In The United States

Cho's rampage comes at the heels of generic Viagra becoming available in the United States. Teva Pharmaceuticals announced on Dec. 11, 2017, that it is launching the product to help male patients save money on treating their reproductive health issues.

"The launch of Teva's sildenafil tablets brings an affordable generic treatment option to the estimated 18 million men in the U.S. who are diagnosed with erectile dysfunction," says Brendan O'Grady, the company's North America Commercial executive vice president.

Teva Pharmaceuticals has made it even easier to access generic Viagra by offering sildenafil tablet savings card, allowing its holder to get a refill for only $100.

Viagra Brings Rare But Serious Side Effects

Pfizer, which first manufactured the blue pill, warns that their product can sometimes cause severe side effects, including priapism or an erection that lasts for more than four hours, sudden loss of vision in one or both eyes, as well as inexplicable loss or reduction of hearing.

Meanwhile, the drug's more common side effects are headaches, hot flashes, stomach pain, blurred vision, stuffy or a runny nose, dizziness, muscle or back pain, rashes, and nausea.

Viagra is also dangerous for patients with existing health issues such as heart problems, unstable blood pressure, sickle cell anemia, eye disease, liver or kidney problems, and a deformed penis shape.
