Boing Boing: Fly with rubber band ball, go to jail, forced blood test:
Fly with rubber band ball, go to jail, forced blood test
A traveller who had a rubber-band ball in his bag was pulled over by the TSA. They insisted that the ball had something metal at the center (it didn’t), then concluded he was on drugs. They put him in jail, forced a blood-sample from him, and continued to hold him after they cut open the ball and finished testing his blood.
This is getting out of hand…. they should have seized the ball at most… this guy should sue … big time. There are clear procedures that TSA is supposed to follow in these and it reads like they broke someprocedural rules.
