Officials have released airport security video showing Kentucky U.S. Sen. Rand Paul being questioned and detained, earlier this week.
Monday, the Republican Senator was detained after refusing a TSA pat-down at the Nashville Airport. This came after a body scan found an anomaly in his leg.
"The scanner said their might be something on my knee and so I raised my pants leg and showed them my knee, pulled my sock down, but they said that wasn't enough," said Senator Rand Paul.
"So, I said, well, maybe I could just walk through the screener again and they said you can't do that, you must go, have a body pat down."
After sitting in an airport cubicle guarded by airport security Senator Paul was eventually released and escorted out of the area by local law enforcement.
"I don't asked to be treated any differently that anyone else," he said. "I show my driver's license, I wait in line like everyone else, but you know if everybody else is being treated like this, we need to change the procedure."
Senator Paul says he will now propose legislation that will allow adults to be re-screened if they choose.
His father GOP Presidential Candidate Ron Paul is going a step further and is attempting to raise $250,000 to help end the Transportation Security Agency of TSA.
The White House said it backed the airport security who they say "Acted appropriately."
