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.
