But Accused Woman Must Stay Out Of Trouble For 6 Months
A California judge has tossed out a case against a Camarillo
woman who allegedly struck a TSA agent over a container of
applesauce, provided she stays out of trouble for six months.
Nadine Hays was accused of hitting a TSA agent when the agent
reportedly tried to take a container of applesauce away from her
93-year-old mother. Hays says she did not strike the agent.
Television station KCAL reports that the incident started over a
blue cooler in which Hays had things like the applesauce and
cottage cheese for her elderly mother, who has since passed away.
She said she had e-mailed TSA in advance about the additional
They were on their way to a wedding, but the incident
landed Hays IN the cooler rather than on an airplane. Hays said she
reached over to grab the ice chest, which is when the prosecution
says she hit the TSA supervisor. The incident was videotaped at the
checkpoint, and Hays can be heard on the tape saying she would hold
TSA responsible if anything happened to her mom.
Hays eventually threw the food out, but she was still handcuffed
and not allowed to sit down when she complained about leg pain. At
one point, Mays fell down with her hands still handcuffed behind
her. She was arrested on misdemeanor battery charges, posted bail,
and eventually got her mother to the wedding.
The television station reports that hays has filed a lawsuit
against TSA. The agency did not comment on the case, but says it
has reviewed the allegations internally, and hopes it will be
instructive for agents in the future.
