The 26-year-old Boston man who was arrested for allegedly going on a naked rampage at Logan Airport over the weekend was arraigned in court on Wednesday.

Prosecutors said Cameron Shenk, an economics student at Harvard Extension School, stripped naked and climbed into the ceiling of a Terminal C women’s bathroom at Logan just before noon on Saturday. Shenk allegedly then fell through the ceiling to the floor and fled the bathroom “bleeding and naked.’’

After the fall, Shenk pulled a Mike Tyson when he allegedly bit off part of the ear of a nearby 84-year-old and tried to choke him with a cane, prosecutors said.

Police soon interceded, and one state trooper was treated for minor injuries after a scuffle. The elderly man was hospitalized with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Shenk will be held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing on Monday.

Shenk’s charges include attempted murder, mayhem, assault, and lewd and lascivious act.
