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.
