Passenger accused of groping TSA agent

June 20, 2012 (FORT MYERS, Fla.)

Carol Price is a retired TSA screener. She was at her old airport, Southwest Florida International, on her way to a funeral when an agent reportedly grabbed her crotch and breasts during a pat down.

Price then approached a supervisor to complain and showed with her hands what she claims happened.

But Price did not have permission to touch the supervisor. According to Price, that particular supervisor never liked her when they worked together, and that's the real reason the supervisor had Price arrested.

The TSA says the pat down of Price was conducted correctly in accordance with its procedures.

Price is charged with misdemeanor battery.
