TSA Gropings: Tables Have Turned Thanks to Yukari Miyamae, Charged With Grabbing Inspector's Breast

A woman trying to board an airplane at Phoenix's Sky Harbor Airport's terminal four turned the tables on a Transportation Security Administration officer: she admittedly grabbed the agent's breast.

Phoenix police say 61-year-old Yukari Miyamae grabbed the breast of a TSA employee after refusing a security screening.

Phoenix Sergeant Steve Martos says Miyamae was in terminal four's checkpoint D about 3:30 p.m. Thursday when she refused a screening by the TSA officer.

According to Martos, Miyamae became argumentative after refusing the screening and grabbed the agent's breast.

After getting arrested, Miyamae continued to be argumentative, but admitted to grabbing the agent's breast.

Miyamae's been booked into Maricopa County Jail on one count of sexual abuse.
