New Port Richey, Florida – Airport security is a part of traveling these days, from walking through X-Ray machines to being patted down. But one New Port Richey couple contacted 10 News to say the search they received went too far.
“It was extremely thorough, almost a violation, “says Jason Steitler as he describes how a TSA official searched him at the Greater Rochester International Airport July 6th. Steitler’s disability requires he uses a wheelchair.
“They did the hair then did the neck. Then they had me do a pushup in my chair, then got down into my inner thigh around my back side. It’s the most thorough search [I've] had done in my life,” says Steitler.
Steitler and his wife, Jennifer, were heading home to New Port Richey that morning. She too is in a wheel chair and was searched by a TSA official.
