(Newser) – A traveler from South Korea did not take to kindly to America's airport security and is in jail as a result. Authorities say Hyunjoo Kim, 39, slapped one female TSA employee at Orlando International Airport and shoved another, reports the Orlando Sentinel. The slap came after a patdown and the shove after she was told that bottles of lotion in her bag were too big to bring aboard the plane. She's asked authorities to let the South Korean government know she's in jail, facing charges of battery on transit agents. (Read more TSA stories.)
