Johnny Cash's son confuses Canada's dress code and gets promptly arrested at the airport

Johnny Cash's son, John Carter Cash, showed up to a Canadian airport this week and was promptly arrested after stripping down to nothing but his underwear.

Cash was arrested at the Deer Lake Airport in Newfoundland on charges of disturbing the peace and being drunk in public.

According to the St. John's Telegram, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said they were called to the airport just after 2 p.m. on Monday for the report of a man who had taken his clothes off. Cash was reportedly in the country for a hunting trip and missed his flight home because of the incident.

Although Cash hasn't yet commented on the arrest, he was reportedly either drunk or had medical issues. By the time the RCMP arrived, security had talked him into putting his clothes back on.

Cash is the only son of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash although he has six half-siblings. He works as a record producer and singer-songwriter, and helped his mom release two of her albums, in 1999 and 2003. He also worked as an associate producer on two of his dad's albums before the singer died more than a decade ago.

Although John has opened up in the past about his parents' addictions, he obviously loved them as his parents and doesn't have anything bad to say about them.

"The honest thing is that my parents wanted to help people. That is part of my responsibility, to carry on that legacy," he said in an interview with Reuters back in 2007 while promoting his new book. "Hopefully, the point of the book is long-lasting love, even though it may be through long suffering."

It's not clear if his parents' addiction runs in the family. Because Cash was cooperative with the RCMP, he was held only until he was sober and reportedly caught a flight home on Tuesday morning.
