French woman arrested for indecent exposure at airport

EVANSVILLE, Indiana, Oct 28, 2002 (AP WorldStream via COMTEX) -- A French woman who became angry while being scanned with a hand-held metal detector at the Evansville Regional Airport was arrested Monday after she removed her shirt and bra in the terminal, police said.

Eliane Yvonne Marcelle Aguillaume, 56, of Paris was charged with disorderly conduct in an airport, resisting arrest and indecent exposure.

Aguillaume became angry when a female airport screener started to scan the area of her bra, police said.

Aguillaume kept reaching inside her sweater, so the scanner had to search the area again. Aguillaume then took off her sweater, shirt and bra, police said.

As Indiana State Trooper Stu Sanders reported that as he attempted to handcuff her, she kept pulling away, and later dropped to the ground and refused to get up.

Aguillaume was taken to the Vanderburgh County Jail and later released after posting $5,300 bond.

Both gates at the airport were shut down for about 10 minutes while Aguillaume was arrested and escorted from the airport.

I don't think she was anyone's profile of a terrorist suspect. A white, middle-aged Frenchwoman? Hrrrumph! I'd get mad too if the TSA yahoos kept searching my private parts repeatedly without any idea of what they were doing. Indecent exposure at airport indeed. Sometimes I think "up yours" is a perfectly justified call in the face of wanton bureaucratic stupidity.

Should have kept the bra on.

Nudity should be an option available to any disgruntled passenger going through our airport security. Any weapon would become readily visible. The perfect scan.

Exposure just doesn't get much more indecent than this.

No, but she was French.

While she seems to have more spunk than the men over there, I'm glad I wasn't at the airport for her "unveiling". LOL

Vive, Mme. Aguillaume. You obviously flunked Surrender 101 while going to school in La Belle France!

Have another glass of wine!

I read the article too quickly.......SHE dropped to the ground NOT they when she removed her bra. I get it now.

I am REALLY glad that I didn't have dinner yet. That picture is at least as nauseating as the mystery gas used by the Russians.

I can see why they insist that their women wear veils. Yikes!

Who cares what she removed, the face would want you to look away.

And they call the French *ssholes...

Remember when Linda Trip was being lambasted by weaselly Clinton defenders about her looks? You guys sound every bit as bad.

Even so, all your nose-picking, dull-eyed commentary about Elaine Aguillaume's looks could be ignored, but for your appalling lack of foresight and overall incomprehension of that these idiotic, freedom crushing anti-terror laws are hanging over your own heads waiting for you to step out of line.
