MINNEAPOLIS – Daryl Miller didn’t make it through airport security because he couldn’t keep his pants on.

Airport police said a security screener was waving a metal-detecting wand over Miller’s pants area on Friday when Miller pulled his shorts down to his ankles. He wasn’t wearing any underwear.

Miller then said, “There, how do you like your job,” thus ending the screening, according to the police report. He was charged with indecent exposure and released on $300 bail.

“We’ve never had anybody do that before,” said airport police Lt. Matt Christenson. “But it’s not abnormal for people to become frustrated with the screening process.”

Miller also became belligerent during the screening, Transportation Security Administration officers told police. One TSA employee also told police that Miller had a note inside a magazine in his bag with an expletive, and told a TSA employee “Oh yeah, it’s for you” when asked who the note was directed at.

“This person exposed themself in a public area, a clear violation of the law, and we needed to take some action on that, otherwise everybody would be dropping their pants,” Christenson said.

Ann’s Note: This story is in honor of the fact that I was specially selected with all of the suspicious looking foreigners to be extensively super-searched at the Miami International Airport on the way to Honduras. :)
