Air Marshal Accused Of Taking Photos Under Skirts

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A federal air marshal was arrested at Nashville International Airport after he was accused of taking pictures with his cell phone underneath women's skirts as they boarded the aircraft Thursday morning.

Metro police said 28-year-old Adam Bartsch was on duty on Southwest Airline Flight 3132 on Thursday when a witness noticed he was taking the photos and grabbed his cellphone. Police said the witness notified a flight attendant and Bartsch was taken off the flight and charged with disorderly conduct.

Bartsch was taken off the plane, and airport police responded. After being questioned, Bartsch admitted to taking the pictures. He was transported to Metro Booking and charged with disorderly conduct.

Assistant Supervisory Air Marshal in Charge Michael Pascarella told The Associated Press that Adam Bartsch was immediately removed from duty and is in the process of being suspended or fired.

"TSA does not tolerate criminal behavior," Pascarella said.

Bartsch is due in court November 14.
