Seattle man acquitted of disobeying TSA agent



Phil Mocek is seen speaking at a public hearing at Seattle's City Hall in 2010.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque jury has acquitted a Seattle man who refused to show his identification to Transportation Security Administration officers at a New Mexico airport.

Phil Mocek was arrested in late 2009 after he wouldn't show his ID and then used a camera to videotape an altercation with TSA officers at Albuquerque International Sunport.

Mocek was facing several charges, including failure to obey an officer and concealing his identity. He was found not guilty of all charges on Friday.

There is no law requiring that passengers show their ID at checkpoints; however, passengers who refuse to show their ID are subject to additional security screenings.
