Woman Accused Of Groping TSA Agent

FORT MYERS, Fla., (UPI) — The Transportation Security Administration said an agent was groped by a woman who was unhappy about her pat down at a Florida airport.

Carol Price of Bonita Springs is facing a misdemeanor battery charge after she allegedly groped a TSA supervisor at Southwest Florida International Airport, WZVN-TV, Fort Myers, Fla., reported Thursday.

John Mills, Price’s defense attorney, said his client was showing the supervisor the inappropriate way she had been touched by a TSA agent.

“It was a customer complaint of an extremely inappropriate search,” Mills said.

Mills said Price is a former TSA agent who used to work at the airport. He said the inappropriate pat-down was a personal attack by a former colleague.

Mills said Price had been on her way to Ohio to attend her brother’s funeral, but she did not make it due to her arrest.

“Ms. Price just wants her name cleared,” Mills said.

The TSA released a statement defending the agent.

“The pat down was conducted correctly in accordance with our procedures. Violence against our officers who work every day to keep the traveling public safe is unacceptable,” the statement said.
