Daytona Beach, FL - The man Volusia County Sheriff's Office arrested at Daytona Beach International Airport last year after he ran naked through the airport screaming that a bomb was going to go off has entered a plea.

According to the State Attorney's Office, the now 26-year-old John Thomas Greenwood, has pleaded no contest to false report of a bomb, criminal mischief, resisting an officer without violence, exposure of sexual organs and burglary of an occupied structure

VCSO deputies had to use a taser on Greenwood when they were able to catch him. He reportedly told deputies he'd planted a bomb in one of the bathrooms. The airport was evacuated and searched. No suspicious devices were found.

Sentencing guidelines call for Greenwood to be sentenced to at least 45 months but his public defender plans to argue for a lighter sentence.

Circuit Judge Matt Foxman set sentencing for July.
