Woman Sues Over Post-Flight Strip-Search

She was apparently targeted because the two men next to her headed to the bathroom at the same time


An Ohio woman who claims she was illegally arrested, detained and strip-searched at Detroit Metro Airport on the tenth anniversary of September 11 is ready to file a lawsuit.

WWJ's Rob Sanford reports the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan will be announcing Tuesday that a lawsuit will be filed on behalf of Shoshana Hebshi, a woman of Arab and Jewish decent.

Hebshi, a 36-year-old freelance journalist and mother of two, says she and two Indian-American men were handcuffed and removed from a plane at the end of a Frontier Airlines flight from Denver to Detroit on Sept. 11, 2011.
