A Fort Wayne woman says a TSA worker pressured her after she refused to go through a full body scanner at Fort Wayne International Airport. Fort Wayne was one of the first handful of airports across the country to receive the new technology last spring.
Charlotte Weybright says when she opted for the full body pat down (vs. scan) the TSA worker repeatedly questioned her.
Travelers do have the option of a pat down instead of a scan. Weybright says on her return flight the agent took her drivers license into a back room for several minutes. Weybright wonders whether her name had been flagged since she refused a full body scan.
Full body scanners fall under the TSA's jurisdiction. Several attempts to contact the TSA for comment were unsuccessful.
