Video released of man allegedly bypassing TSA checkpoint at Texas airport

DALLAS (WHDH) - The Transportation Security Administration released surveillance video from last year showing a man without a ticket bypassing a security checkpoint in Texas.

The security scare happened at Dallas-Forth Worth Airport last summer. Damarius Cockerham was arrested 15 minutes after he allegedly walked past security agents without a ticket or luggage.

Cockerham allegedly went up to a closed lane at the security checkpoint and moved aside the barriers to walk through an unmanned metal detector. As Cockerham walked past, security video showed a TSA agent looking down at his phone.

Aviation expert Denny Kelley said he is not surprised Cockherman managed to make it to the plane, saying TSA agents are not trained well.
