The Transportation Security Administration has taken national security to a new level as they recently stopped a woman to check her afro for explosives.

Dallas resident Isis Brantley said she was stopped on Monday at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta after she went through security. Brantley said an agent asked her if someone had checked her hair. She said no one had and continued on her way. She then heard someone yelling as she went down the escalator to catch her flight.

“I just heard these voices saying, ‘Hey you, hey you, ma’am, stop. Stop — the lady with the hair, you,” she told NBC’s Dallas affiliate.

She said she reluctantly allowed them to do it. The agents patted her hair down right there instead of asking to return to a private area for screening.
