Audio: Passenger Threatens TSA Worker

John Tyner, a man who refused a full-body scan and pat-down search procedure at the San Diego International Airport, is rapidly becoming an internet icon, as his airport story is swirling all over the web.

The argument initiated when John Tyner was attempting to fly out of San Diego on Saturday and could not board his scheduled flight due to the required procedure of full-body scan.

On his personal blog, John Tyner has shared his airport argument and a cell phone audio recording of his hour-long denial conversation along with an explanation what actually happened.

A software engineer by profession, John Tyner was preparing to go through the metal detector when he was pulled out of the line to go through the backscatter X-ray machine, which provides a full-body scan. 31-year-old John Tyner was informed later that he would be undergoing a pat-down search by a male TSA agent.

Just before the pat-down search procedure was about to begin, John Tyner warned the worker, "If you touch my junk, I'll have you arrested."

The agent backed off at this comment, and John Tyner left the airport only after being threatened with a lawsuit and a fine for refusing to complete security screening.
