DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A Dallas woman claims she was humiliated at an airport when TSA agents patted down her hair.
Isis Brantley was headed down an escalator at Hartsfield-Jackson International airport in Atlanta, after she was screened a the initial security checkpoint, when she says two TSA agents came after her asking to check her hair for explosives.
Brantley says the agents began patting down her large afro in public as she waited on a train platform.
She claims she was so embarrassed and couldn’t understand why they checked her again after her initial security screening. Brantley says she couldn’t believe it was happening to her. She says she wouldn’t have minded if the TSA did the hair pat-down at the security checkpoint. It was the public display that upset her.
