Denver has agreed to pay a $ 300 , 000 settlement to a United Airlines pilot who was arrested for standing nude near a hotel Collins, a 22-year veteran of the airline, was arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure after he was seen walking around naked in a Westin hotel room window on Sept.

Last month, Denver quietly paid an airline pilot $ 300 , 000 to settle his allegation that city police officers violated his civil rights before arresting him on “It is not a crime to be naked in Denver , even if you are a man – and especially if you are in the privacy of your own hotel room,” said Craig Silverman

"We agreed on that figure in mediation on Friday," Luby told NBC News.

The Denver Police Department did not immediately return a request for an interview.

Silverman told NBC News Tuesday his client was unaware he could be seen when he opened the curtains of his hotel room in the late morning that September day.

Collins, of Leesburg, Virginia, was naked and about to shower when he received a phone call, according to Silverman.

"Captain Collins walked around his room and took in the view as he was absorbed in the 24-minute phone call," Silverman wrote in a notice of claim dated March 15, 2019.

After the call ended, Collins was going to shower when he was alarmed by a Denver police officer loudly banging on his door and ordering him to open it. The officer told Collins he would enter with or without permission, the notice of claim states.

DENVER -- The city of Denver will pay a United Airlines pilot $ 300 , 000 to settle a wrongful arrest lawsuit that stemmed from an incident at the Westin at Denver International Airport in September 2018. Andrew Collins was arrested for standing naked in front of his 10th-floor hotel window overlooking

A United Airlines pilot falsely arrested for indecent exposure after standing in front of his hotel room window naked has won a $ 300 , 000 settlement from the city of Denver . The pilot had been scheduled to fly from Boston to Newark but weather forced a landing in Colorado Springs.

Collins, now dressed in pants and no shirt, opened the door, and "was immediately confronted and rushed" by the officer, according to the notice of claim, citing police body-camera footage.

Witnesses inside the airport had told police they could see a naked man in an upper floor window of the Westin Denver International Airport.

Collins' attorney said his client was unable to see anyone observing him from the airport terminal, which is more than 100 yards away.

Under Colorado law, a person commits indecent exposure if they knowingly exposes their genitals to the view of any person, under circumstances in which such conduct was likely to cause affront or alarm to the other person, with the intent to arouse or satisfy the sexual desire of any person, the notice of claim states. While there was nudity in this case, it was not sexual, Silverman said.

"Captain Collins thought he was alone and not in anyone’s view," the notice of claim states. "It is not a crime to be naked in Denver. It is certainly not a crime to be naked in one’s hotel room."

Collins pleaded not guilty and a judge dismissed the misdemeanor charge in March. But he was suspended for six months from United Airlines as a result of the incident.

"Though the city of Denver may deny liability, it has now paid a price for what happened on Sept. 20, 2018," his attorney said in a statement.
