Video obtained by WSB-TV allegedly shows the man approaching the aircraft while wearing only underwear.
The incident happened on the taxiway shortly before 5 p.m., the airport tweeted. The man was taken into custody by Atlanta police, Brown confirmed.
Jones was charged with criminal trespassing, public indecency and obstruction of law enforcement officers, Brown said.
The airport initially tweeted that someone “exited an aircraft stopped on a taxiway after arrival.” They later backed off that narrative.
The airport said operations were not impacted by the incident.
An investigation is ongoing.
