Sgt. England clarifies events in Las Vegas Air Port Terminal
Sgt. Mark T. England posted a comment that provides more accurate details with regard to the events which occurred in the Las Vegas airport terminal:
Just to let everyone know this was not over a cup of soda… I misuderstood the TSA liquids ban, because everytime I’ve flown since the ban went into effect, I was allowed to take a drink through security that I had bought at the airport. I didn’t know the rule, because different airports and TSA checkpoint interpret the rule however they want to.
As for my complaint about the TSA supervisor, it was not about the soda. He explained the rule and I complied, but he also claimed to be a LT in the Army and refused to show ID. I showed mine when asked about my military status, but he was given 4 chances to produce something any soldier carries on them at all times and he refused 4 times. That is why I came back to file a complaint/report.
