DENVER (AP) -- A Colorado woman accused of groping a female Transportation Security Administration agent in Phoenix is getting some support from people unhappy about screening procedures.
A Facebook page in support of Yukari Mihamae of Longmont had about 380 supporters on Monday.
Some posters on the page, though, defended the procedures as necessary for public safety.
Police say the 61-year-old is accused of grabbing the left breast of an unidentified TSA Agent Thursday afternoon after the TSA said she refused to go through passenger screening.
She was arrested and released from jail on Friday.
