PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A man who stripped naked during a security check last year at Portland International Airport says he expects the Transportation Security Administration will uphold its $1,000 fine at a May 14 hearing.
That’s fine with John Brennan of Portland. He plans to appeal in federal court to open the door to a review of the constitutionality of TSA searches and inspections.
Brennan was fined for disrupting the screening process. He says he was very cooperative. He says he stripped to show he wasn’t hiding anything after a screener said they’d detected traces of nitrates, which could indicate an explosive.
Brennan was found not guilty in Multnomah County Circuit Court of indecent exposure.
