Woman charged after groping TSA screener
FORT MEYERS, Fl. (KGO) -- A Florida woman is in trouble for turning the tables on airport security. She's accused of groping a screener and it was all caught on camera.
Carol Price claims that during screening before her flight out of Fort Myers, a TSA screener groped her during a pat-down. In response, the video shows Price putting down her carry-on bags, turning to a TSA supervisor, and grabbing her.
Price says she was trying to show the supervisor what she just went through. Price is a former TSA screener herself who used to work at the airport and knew some of the staff.
"It was a customer complaint of an extremely inappropriate search. She did not touch the supervisor as intrusively as she was touched," Price's attorney John Mills said.
Price has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor battery charges. The TSA claims the pat-down was conducted correctly.
