From YouTube:

They tried to get me to do additional screening of my Body after I was already off the plane and headed out of the airport. I ended up leaving the airport without incident from the Denver police.

Fox Minneapolis has some more details.

There was no crime committed, but Nygard was once on the TSA’s “no-fly” list. Last Saturday, he took Spirit Airlines flight 381 to Denver to see if he was still on it. As it happens, he’d been downgraded to another list that is designated by four S’s on a boarding pass. Those are supposed to signal security to perform an additional search at the security checkpoint — but that didn’t happen n Minneapolis. Furthermore, the TSA didn’t realize it until Nygard was already halfway to his destination.

A woman accused of making it through airport security without a boarding pass and taking a Southwest Airlines flight from San Jose to Los Angeles pleaded no contest Wednesday to a misdemeanor trespassing charge after being arrested at LAX two nights earlier.

Marilyn Hartman, 62, was charged in connection with willfully and unlawfully entering Los Angeles as a stowaway on an aircraft, a misdemeanor, according to the LA City Attorney’s Office. She was ordered to 24 months on probation and three days in jail.
