Drunk Man Arrested for Posing as TSA Agent to Pat Down Ladies

As if airport security wasn't a nightmare enough

If going through airport security wasn’t bad enough, CBS reports that a San Francisco man was arrested Tuesday after allegedly posing as a TSA officer to give two private pat downs.

Police say that the ticketed passenger went through security, was seen drinking at an airport lounge for a few hours, and then circled back to security to convince women to join him in the private screening room. CBS reports the 53-year-old might have swiped a pair of official blue gloves to look the part.

The actual agents noticed something was amiss when they saw him bringing a second woman to the booth, as male officers are only allowed to do that if a female agent is present.

The man is currently facing charges for being drunk in public.
