Federal air marshal arrested for taking cell phone photos up women’s skirts (Video)

A federal air marshal was arrested in Nashville, Tenn., Thursday for allegedly taking cell phone photographs up women passengers’ skirts. Adam Bartsch, 28, was arrested after another male passenger noticed him taking the inappropriate photos, and wrestled the federal air marshal’s cell phone from his hands, according to ABC News2 on Oct. 17.

Passenger Rey Collazo said he first saw Bartsch, who he did not know was an on-duty air marshal, taking the pictures while boarding the plane.

He described how he reached over and grabbed the cell phone from Bartsch. Collazo said he had to twist the phone out of the marshal’s hand, and after a short struggle he shoved him back and took the phone away from him.

Collazo notified the flight crew, who in turn called authorities, after first calling Bartsch a “disgrace” to men and human being.

Blackburn Calls For Investigation Of TSA Hiring



NASHVILLE, Tenn.- A scathing new report from Tennessee Congressman Marsha Blackburn says the crimes of TSA officers only a symptom of the problem.

On Monday, Blackburn released a report titled “Not on my Watch”: 50 Failures of TSA’s Transportation Security Officers”. The report lists 50 crimes committed by TSA agents, including two from Nashville International Airport.

Blackburn said that more needs to be done to keep bad apples out of the airport screening process.

“TSA needs to immediately remove themselves from the human resource business. This report details highly disturbing cases where pedophiles and child pornographers wearing federal law enforcement uniforms are not only patting down unsuspecting travelers, but in many cases stealing valuables from their bags. Enough is enough. It’s time for Congress to step in and demand accountability from Administrator Pistole,” said Blackburn.

Also as part of the report she points out that TSA employees act as law enforcement officers, but have little training, and aren’t screened as thoroughly as local police departments. She says the solution is to get the TSA out of law enforcement back to what they were originally set out to do.

Two local TSA employees were mentioned in the report one of them, accused statutory rapist Clifton Lyles, who worked at Nashville International Airport. Another local TSA employee was arrested for cooking meth.
