During a security pat-down of her 14-year-old daughter, Andrea Abbott was arrested at the Nashville International Airport.

Airport police say she became belligerent.

Abbott’s attorney, Brent Horst, says the only thing his client was doing was protecting her daughter, saying, “What it comes down to is this woman objected to what was going on.

Airport security released video of the incident:
