A Colorado woman has been arrested for giving the TSA a little taste of its own medicine.

Yukari Mihamae, 61, was flying to her home in Colorado from Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, Arizona when she groped a female TSA agent’s breast. According to a police report, Mihamae grabbed agent Barbara O’Toole’s “left breast through her clothing.” She’s accused of “squeezing and twisting it with both hands without the victim’s permission.” (TSA to roll out ‘Trusted Traveler’ program)

O’Toole was dressed in full uniform, complete with a metal badge.

Responding officers said Mihamae admitted to the groping but resisted arrest.

Her next-door neighbor told a Fox affiliate in Denver he was “100 percent shocked” by the incident. “For her to be arrested for anything is totally shocking to me,” he said.

Mihamae was released from Maricopa County Jail Friday, and now faces a felony count of sexual abuse. She’s expected in court next month.
