NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A 41-year-old Clarksville woman was arrested at the Nashville airport after becoming verbally abusive to Transportation Security Administration officers who were trying to pat down her daughter, according to police reports.

Andrea Abbott first refused for her and her daughter to walk through scanners Saturday afternoon, telling officers she did not want them to see them naked.

Then she refused a pat-down, telling officers she would not let them grab her daughter's crotch.

She eventually let her daughter be screened, but tried to film it with her cell phone. Then she refused to be patted down herself.

Police said the woman was using profanity. They arrested her on a disorderly conduct charge.

She was released on $500 bond. Court records don't list an attorney, and Abbott's telephone number is disconnected.
