After triggering a routine alarm, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky refused a pat down by the TSA at the Nashville airport.

“When an irregularity is found during the TSA screening process, it must be resolved prior to allowing a passenger to proceed to the secure area of the airport,” TSA spokesman Greg Soule said in a statement. “Passengers who refuse to complete the screening process cannot be granted access to the secure area in order to ensure the safety of others traveling.”

Paul rebooked another flight and was able to get onboard.
