Woman Takes Matters Into Own Hands, Gropes TSA Agent

The drama surrounding TSA airport scanners and patdowns continues. A woman who used to be a TSA agent was in the airport on her way to her brother's funeral when she got what she felt was an intrusive security patdown, possibly from former coworkers. So she decided to turn the tables and demonstrate how such treatment felt--and ended up in jail.

From the local ABC affiliate:

It happened on her way to Cleveland, Ohio. Airline passenger Carol Price says while going through security to catch her flight, a TSA agent groped her.

In response, the video 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.
