Texas Woman (82) Arrested By TSA At Airport

An 82-year-old Texas woman had forgotten to take her bipolar medication before she scuffled with an airport security officer in Kansas and was arrested and jailed for about two hours, her husband said Friday.

Silas Bryan, blamed a "little bottle of soap" for touching off the confrontation between his wife, Lila Mae Bryan, of Mesquite, and Transportation Security Administration workers at Eisenhower International Airport in Wichita. The TSA said the problem was that the bottle found Wednesday in her carry-on bag was over the 3.4 ounce limit. The TSA said Friday that the woman has apologized for walking around an X-ray screening belt and assaulting an officer.

TSA spokeswoman Carrie Harmon said the security officer found the bottle during a routine search when the woman's bag triggered an alarm. An airport police officer who saw the commotion "removed the passenger from the checkpoint," Harmon said. Airport police authorized the woman's arrest.
