Man Arrested at SFO Security Screening May Have Been Impersonating TSA Agent


SFO (KRON) — A man arrested for acting intoxicated at San Francisco International Airport could potentially face more serious charges of impersonating a TSA agent.

Police say they took 53-year old Eric Slighten into custody a week ago after authorities at the airport reported he was acting drunk at the security checkpoint for the International Terminal.

Slighten was taken to the San Mateo County jail where he was booked and later released.

Later authorities say they started to hear stories that Slighten was motioning women into a private screening room, posing as a TSA agent.

Detectives say so far no victims have come forward but authorities are looking at flight manifests for people who might have encountered Slighten before flying off to other destinations.

Investigators are also hoping other witnesses may come forward.
