LOS ANGELES — A former Transportation Security Administration agent is accused of tricking a woman into exposing herself, citing a security issue.
Johnathon Lomeli was a TSA agent at Los Angeles International Airport, The Associated Press reported.
The incident allegedly happened June 10, 2019, KCBS reported.
Lomeli is also accused of telling the woman that additional screening would be done in a private room, but then when they were in an elevator, he allegedly told her she could have the screening done at that location.
The attorney general said that Lomeli told the woman to lift her shirt to show that she was not hiding anything, then proceeded to comment on her body before she was allowed to leave, the AP reported.
The TSA alerted the FBI about the allegations against Lomeli, who was fired, the AP reported.
LAX served 88.1 million passengers in 2019, KCBS reported.
