Nov 11 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Although citizens are supposedly allowed to opt out of having full body scans at airports, a popular blogger and radio show host has made the claim that she was handcuffed, given a lecture on terrorism, and screamed at for refusing to undergo the intrusive procedure at Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport.

Meg McLain is the host of a radio talk show on which is based in the Northeast. She became the target of a random full body screening which did not go as planned when she refused to undergo the invasive scan.

As soon as she refused to submit to the screening, McLain says she was grabbed by the arm by a woman who pulled her out of line. She then snatched away from the woman and started to question her actions.

At that point, twelve or so Broward County Sheriff deputies, as well as half a dozen Transportation Security Administration officers came to subdue her. She stated that her only offense was to refuse going through the full body scan. In her interview, which was posted on Youtube, embedded below, she says that “It was like an army coming at me. I was just scared.”
