TSA Fights Back With Video

Knoxville (WVLT) -- The Transportation Security Administration is fighting back against a harassment allegation... You-Tube style.

A former secret service agent was recently asked to empty out her toddler's sippy cup at an airport checkpoint.

The woman claims she was improperly detained after she accidentally dropped the cup.

TSA officials say the security video clearly shows the woman chose to dump the liquid on the floor.

So the TSA has posted that video on the top of the main page of their Website.

If you click on the box that says "Myth Busters" you can see the video, with a caption that reads, "Decide For Yourself."

If you would like to view the video and decide for yourself, you can click on the TSA link below.

    This lady was 100% in the WRONG! Say what you want about the TSA, they were RIGHT and I'm glad they posted the video and called this woman out to be the liar she is. She didn't try to drink it like she claimed and it DIDN'T spill on accident, she CLEARLY spilled it out in frustration. The she had the nerve to play the "do you know who I am" card! I am thrilled they made her clean it up, she needed to be knocked down a few pegs.
