Watch Out for Those Teachers!

A special education and Sunday school teacher was handcuffed and put into a police car last month after Tampa International Airport police charged her with carrying a concealed weapon. The alleged weapon was an 8 1/2-inch leather strap with small lead weights at each end, which she had carried on several flights since the 9/11/2001, including through Tampa airport security.

Although state prosecutors declined to pursue the criminal charges, the Transportation Security Administration is still processing the paperwork to drop the $10,000 civil fine. See Teacher Arrested After Bookmark Called Concealed Weapon.
