Someone should send this lady flowers, and hire an attorney to help her!! Of course, we don’t know the entire story, but if they touch you, it is in the interest of “national security”. If you touch them, it is assault!! RIGHT!! Our guess is that she was “patted down” and, being suspicious of the agent, did the same to her.
PHOENIX – We hear a lot of complaints about security screeners groping airline passengers.
But now, a Colorado woman is accused of putting her hands on a TSA agent at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix.
Court records show 61-year-old Yukari Mihamae grabbed the left breast of the female agent Thursday at the Terminal 4 checkpoint.
Police say she squeezed and twisted the agent’s breast with both hands.
Officers say Mihamae admitted to the crime.
There’s no word why she touched the agent.
Mihamae now faces a felony count of abuse.

OKLAHOMA CITY – Upset by her experience going through airport security a few weeks ago, a Phoenix woman decided to make a point.
Tammy Banovac did it by wearing next to nothing while going through security at the airport in Oklahoma City. She’s wearing only a bra and underweat in plain view of everyone.
She said she felt like she was sexually assaulted during an earlier trip to the airport — so Wednesday, she wore only this under her coat so agents could easily see she wasn’t hiding anything.
Video was taken by another passenger and then posted on YouTube.
“I don’t go naked through the airport, it’s only at the screening facility,” Tammy Banovac told us. “Its easier for me, it’s easier for them, it’s kind of a win-win situation.”
Banovac says when she arrived at the airport Tuesday to catch a flight to Phoenix, something was wrong. The TSA agent told her they detected nitrates on her — nitrates are found in bombs.
“I can’t say there were or weren’t nitrates present but I’m a doctor. I know where nitrates are they’re in our bacon they’re in a weenie and they’re in body lotion that I wear.”
She was taken aside for a more thorough search. Her carry on luggage was also searched. Then a supervisor was called, and said she wouldn’t be flying.
So Banovac spent the night in Oklahoma and returned to the airport Wednesday morning in her underwear.
“My checked bag went on to Phoenix without me last night so I had no other clothes,” she explains. This time, there were no problems.
“I sailed through security like a knife through butter.”
As for arriving in airports in her underwear? “I will do it again just for expediency.”
According to court records, she lives in Longmont, Colorado and is self-employed.
