A South Korean woman got into a dust-up with a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) employee before boarding a flight at Orlando International Airport on Wednesday, according to The Orlando Sentinel.

The woman, 39-year-old Hyunjoo Kim, reportedly objected to the agent becoming a bit touchy, and to her bottles of lotion being turned away at a checkpoint.

She then slapped one agent and pushed another several times, according to an arrest report obtained by the paper. Kim reportedly also asked that the South Korean government not be notified.
