Old Lady Goes Berserk On TSA Over A Bottle Of Hand Sanitizer
An 82-year-old Texas woman scuffled with an airport security officer in Kansas over a bottle of Bath and Body Works hand gel. As a result, Lila Mae Bryan was jailed for about two hours after. The ‘little old lady’ expressed embarrassment Friday, calling herself a “plain old grandma” who’d forgotten to take her bipolar medication according to Yahoo News.
The TSA said Friday that the 5-foot-2, 120-pound woman walked around an X-ray screening belt early Wednesday morning and assaulted a TSA officer. The officer, 37, was not injured, according to reports. The confrontation began Wednesday when TSA workers at Eisenhower International Airport in Wichita tried to confiscate Lila Mae Bryan’s bottle of Bath and Body Works foaming hand gel because it exceeded the 3.4 ounce limit.
“I can’t believe I did all that,” Bryan, of Mesquite, said Friday in an interview with The Associated Press, after issuing an apology.
TSA is always taking someone’s ‘stuff’. Karma is swift at times.
