– A former airport security guard and target of an aggressive pat down at a Florida airport has been busted for groping a TSA manager as she demonstrated how not
to search a passenger. The arrested woman, who was flying from Southwest Florida International Airport to her brother's funeral in Ohio, complained about "intrusive touching of her genitals and breasts" by a TSA agent, said her attorney. Carol Price, 59, complained to the guard's supervisor—her own former boss when she worked at the same airport—then grabbed the supervisor's crotch to demonstrate what had just happened to her, reports ABC News
. Price was charged with misdemeanor battery.
According to the police report, Price "did intentionally and without consent grab the victim and slide her hands into the crotch area" of her former boss. "She doesn't feel like she's done anything wrong, and I agree with her," said Price's attorney. "We hope to get a not guilty verdict and have her named cleared. She did not touch the supervisor as intrusively as she was touched." The initial pat down, the TSA insists, was conducted "correctly in accordance with our procedures," the agency said in a statement to WZVN-TV
