Food Fight? CA Judge Tosses TSA Applesauce Case

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 luggage.

 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.
