A woman claims she was banned from boarding her flight after a Transportation Security Administration agent said she had a bad attitude.

The woman said she was confronted by the agent after being cleared by TSA security at a Houston airport.

She posted a 22-second video of the confrontation on YouTube entitled “AirportVideoofTSA."

The woman stated, “I was not allowed to board a plane (even though I had already been through airport security) because I drank my water instead of letting the TSA “test” it.  The TSA agent finally admitted that it wasn’t because they thought I was a security risk-it was because the TSA agent, Louis Godeaux, was mad at me!”

The exchange went as follows:

Woman: Do you think I’m honestly a threat? Do you think that?

TSA agent: No, no, no but with your attitude . . .

Woman: Wait, let me get this straight, this is retaliatory for my attitude? This is not making the airways safer, this is retaliatory.

TSA agent: Pretty much, yes. [Inaudible]

Woman: Is that legal?

TSA agent: Yes it is.

TSA told reporters than the agent was simply following standard procedures. The agency has been testing liquids since 2007.

“The test involves a test strip and a dropper containing a nontoxic solution. In case you’re wondering, our officers don’t place the test strips in your beverages/liquids,” a TSA blog explained.

    I’m sorry I’m still confused was she not allowed on the plane becuase she drank the water or becasue of the attitude ? Neither one of which I believe is legal.Show me the law tht says she can’t drink her water BEFORE boarding the plane and the law that says she has to be nice to TSA agents I want to see that

    Some people power trip when you give them authority.
    Unfortunately these TSA agents have huge amount of power.
    Avoid arguing with them. Afterall you only have to interact with them for a few seconds, bite your tongue, i know it’s hard . Just try , your goal is to board the airplane.
