DALLAS – A woman claims her son and her family were "treated like dogs" by TSA agents at an airport security checkpoint.
Jennifer Williamson posted a Facebook video on Sunday morning showing her son, Aaron, being patted down by a TSA official at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and then being held for over an hour.
In the post, Williamson said she originally asked agents to screen Aaron in "other ways" as he suffers from Sensory Perception Disorder (SPD).
"He physically did not alarm at all during screening, he passed through the detector just fine." Williamson wrote on Facebook.
Despite the lack of alarm, Williamson said Aaron was detained for over an hour, keeping the family from making their flight.
According to Williamson, Aaron was still asking about what he had done wrong hours later.
"Somehow these power tripping TSA agents who are traumatizing children and doing whatever they feel like without any cause, need to be reined in." continued Williamson.
Williamson hopes the incident shines a light on others who have been in the same position.
