Airline Passenger Protest: "If you touch my junk, I'll have you arrested" (video)

A man, 31-year-old John Tyner, refused to allow TSA to grope his groin. The entire episode (audio only) was caught on his cell phone. The "Touch my junk" comment comes after the 3:30 mark of the video. A supervisor is called after he makes the remark to the TSA screener. Here is part of the conversation with the female supervisor.
Tyner: "I don't understand how a sexual assault can be made a condition of my flying,"

TSA supervisor: "This is not considered a sexual assault,"

Tyner: "It would be if you weren't the government."

At the 8:35 mark Tyner is told,
"By buying the ticket you gave up a lot of your rights”

American Airlines personnel refunded Tyner's non-refundable ticket and he left the airport.
