Man Posed as Security Screener, Patted Down Female Travelers

The New York Times is reporting that a man at the San Francisco Airport posed as a security agent and took two women in a private room for "patdowns." The 53 year-old man was wearing a blue shirt, khaki pants and latex gloves. 

Eric Slighton was arrested at the airport at around 12:30 p.m. on July 15 after he was spotted directing women into the private room, according to CNN. Police officers who responded to the incident said he showed signs of public intoxication and he was placed under arrest.

Charges were dropped against the man "since there wasn't much evidence against him, especially since the private screening rooms have no security cameras."

"We don't know if anything improper did happen" in the screening room, Karen Guidotti, the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office Chief Deputy told CNN. "We were never able to locate those women."
