Woman Learns The Hard Way That “Patting Down” TSA Agents Is A Bad Idea [VIDEO]

At least that’s what one Florida woman found out the hard way. Carol Price, who was flying out of Southwest Florida International airport, claims that a TSA agent groped her while she was going through security. But rather than file a written complaint, Price went with a more visceral way of showing her displeasure. Explains ABC-7:
In response, the video [see below] shows Price put down her carry-on bags, turn to a TSA supervisor and grab her – allegedly without permission – to show the supervisor what Price says she went through.
Oh my. Well, that certainly gets a point across doesn’t it? Price, a former TSA agent herself, says she was just trying to show the supervisor the inappropriateness of her pat down.
Unfortunately for Price who (ouch) was reportedly on her way to her brother’s funeral, she was removed from her flight and charged with misdemeanor battery. And while it should be clear to most that vigilante justice rarely has a place in airports, this incident does raise serious questions about the lengths the TSA can go to keep flyers safe. Let’s hope this is a teachable moment.
