Mother found guilty in TSA pat-down case

Via Don


 A Clarksville mother accused of berating Transportation Security Administration officers trying to pat down her teenage daughter has been found guilty of disorderly conduct.

Jurors began deliberating around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday and reached their verdict about four hours later. Forty-two-year-old Andrea Abbott faces up to 30 days in jail and a $50 fine.

Transportation Security Officer Karen King testified that before the pat-down, Abbott yelled in her face that she didn't want anyone "touching her daughter's crotch."

Abbott eventually allowed her then-14-year-old daughter to undergo the pat-down, but then she refused a pat-down for herself and was arrested.
