Does anyone know the status of the AA Capt who was arrested in Honolulu? As I understand it he was given the third degree by one of those idiot security screeners. He was asked to undo his belt or remove his shoes. He requested a private room which was not provided. He complied with the "strip search" and proceded to his aircraft. Securtiy latter arrived at the gate and asked for the captain. They went down the jet way and arrested him on the spot. Seems the one of the security screeners made up some bogus strory that the Capt. had shoved him or something.

I guesse Carty and the union plan to back this Capt. the hilt. I hope this is still the case. Any new info would be appreciated.
