Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura is suing the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration over its full-body scans and pat-downs at airports.

Ventura claims the security procedures violate his constitutional right to be free from unreasonable searches.

He is asking a federal judge to issue an injunction ordering TSA officials to stop searching him.

He had a hip replacement in 2008. Now his titanium hip sets off airport metal detectors.
