SAN FRANCISCO, CA (KPIX/CNN) – A man is accused of posing as security screener at the San Francisco airport and giving women private pat downs.
Authorities say he was a ticketed passenger who went through the security checkpoint.
He then went to an airport lounge, where authorities say he spent a few hours drinking.
And that’s when the trouble began on Tuesday.
He’s accused of returning to the screening area and convincing two female passengers to go into a private booth.
TSA agents became suspicious and detained the 53-year-old.
He faces a public drunkenness charge, but could face additional charges.
