Michael Roberts Express Jet Pilot Refuses Body Scan, Banned From Flying (VIDEO, POLL)

Posted: Updated:

A pilot for ExpressJet Airlines is filing a lawsuit against the Government for violating what he considers his 4th amendment right, according to ABC News.

1st Officer Michael Roberts refused to go through the new full body scans at the Memphis airport he has flown from for years. The TSA told him he could not fly if he did not go through the new scans and be subjected to a full body pat down.

Roberts says he was "outraged" and that the "4th Amendment is there for a reason."

He claims to be filing the lawsuit "for his kids" because he's scared of the world they are growing up in.
