    A woman was arrested for slapping a TSA agent at a Florida airport after they tried to give her a pat down and told her her lotion container was too large.
    Hyunjoo Kim, 39, of South Korea wasn't a fan of the Transportation Security Administration's daily practices at Orlando International Airport. When a female officer tried to give her a pat down, Kim slapped the woman.

    However she got even more angry when other TSA agents told her that her two bottles of lotion did not follow the TSA's 3-1-1 rule. She didn't want the agents going through her bag so she continued to shove them.

    She should try braving airport security at FNJ if she thinks it's that bad at MCO.

    As much as I might sympathize with her disdain for the treatment she may have received, I can't possibly condone her actions.
    We all have rules and regulations that we have to follow.
    If she does not wish to conform, she should stay at home or try another means of travel.
    I am not always a huge fan of TSA, but if they save one life doing what they do, it is a very small price for all of us to pay.

    All I can think of is that she has some kind of diplomatic/political clout which made her think someone will bail her out before the more dehumanizing pat down at the county jail.

    Maybe the honorary consul of South Korea in Tampa, FL, who goes by the name of Jill Kelley?

    Oh, darn, she just lost her title.
