Muhammad Ali Jr. Interrogated at Airport Once Again

Muhammad Ali Jr. claims he was once again “harassed” at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) Friday which delayed him from boarding his JetBlue flight.

“They had a ‘red flag’ on my flight,” the son of the heavyweight boxer said. They said I wasn’t able to get on until I talked to homeland security.” Ali also said he was asked a bevy of questions, including where he was born.

In a statement, however, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) said differently: “Upon arriving at the airline check-in counter, a call was made to confirm Mr. Ali’s identity with TSA officials. When Mr. Ali arrived at the checkpoint, his large jewelry alarmed the checkpoint scanner. He received a targeted pat-down in the area of his jewelry to clear the alarm and was cleared to catch his flight.”
