Woman Faces Charges for Undressing at Airport

E V A N S V I L L E, Ind., Oct. 30 — A Frenchwoman accused of undressing during an airport security screening could face up to three years in prison if convicted under a law passed after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Eliane Yvonne Marcele Aguillaume, 56, of Paris, burst into tears Tuesday when a judge explained the possible penalties through an interpreter.

Judge Robert J. Tornatta found probable cause for charges of disorderly conduct at an airport, a felony, and resisting law enforcement and public indecency, both misdemeanors. Aguillaume was scheduled to be formally charged Friday.

Deputy Prosecutor Dawnya Taylor said the felony charge stemmed from a state law passed in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The law took effect July 1. It has never been applied in southwest Indiana, she said.

The statute prescribes a sentence of six months to three years, with one year the standard.

"We're going to have to decide if the incident rose to the level of a felony," Taylor said.

Aguillaume was arrested Monday at Evansville Regional Airport after she allegedly stripped to the waist in an angry response to a security screener's attempt to search her with a metal-detecting wand.

During a routine security screening, authorities say Aguillaume kept reaching inside her sweater, forcing guards to search her again.

Aguillaume then became upset and allegedly removed her sweater, shirt and bra. Police said Aguillaume tried to pull away as an officer attempted to handcuff her. She later dropped to the ground and refused to get up.

Aguillaume, who was returning to France after attending the wedding of a nephew in the Evansville area, was booked in the Vanderburgh County Jail and released after posting a $5,300 bond.

no way are we gonna detain a foreigner for 3 years for taking her clothes off in an airport. the need to search her is more compelling legally than the need to have people not be indescent. if she can prove she stripped to aid the search shes all good. wow, i wonder if shes the same girl that stripped at platinum in new jersey...hizzoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo1oo11o1o010111001010101111100000010000111000000101
