(FOX News) - Beware of little girls bearing juice pouches?
A California dad is livid after the discovery of a Capri Sun juice pouch in his 10-year-old daughter’s carry-on handbag led to an extensive frisking from a Transportation Security Administration agent – and he caught the entire uncomfortable encounter on video.
“Maybe the TSA agents were bad apples, maybe they were undertrained, maybe they need re-training, maybe they did everything by the book,” Kevin Payne, the girl’s dad, told WNCN. “I don’t really know. But it was an uncomfortable situation.”
Vendela Payne was subjected to the pat-down at Raleigh-Durham International Airport on Dec. 30 when an agent found the contraband juice container and a subsequent swab of the girl’s bag produced a false-positive for explosives. Liquids exceeding 3 ounces aren’t permitted in carry-on bags.
