Air Marshal Charged With Taking Photos Up Passengers’ Skirts

A federal air marshal in Nashville, Tennessee has recently been charged with taking photographs up the skirts of female passengers as they boarded a plane at Nashville International Airport. Air marshal Adam Bartsch has been arrested and awaits trial for his actions that were witnessed by other passengers. One such passenger took out their cell phone and filmed the marshal’s misdeeds.

Michael Pascarella, the Assistant Supervisory Air Marshal in Charge, told The Associated Press that Bartsch was removed from duty as soon as these allegations were lodged against him. He is, according to Pascarella, in the process of being suspended or fired. He further emphasized “TSA does not tolerate criminal behavior.”

Nashville local WKRN-TV say that the TSA is assisting with the investigation. Police have so far confirmed that Bartsch was on duty, flying Southwest Airline Flight 3132 Thursday when the incident was witnessed and recorded. Police tell WKRN that “the witness notified a flight attendant and Bartsch was taken off the flight and charged with disorderly conduct.” Bartsch court date has been set for November 14.
