DOWNTOWN — A month after a judge agreed to drop a misdemeanor battery charge against a woman who refused to relinquish a cooler of snacks for her ailing mother at Bob Hope Airport, she now faces a $2,500 fine. Nadine Kay Hays, of Camarillo, who was traveling to Nashville, Tenn., last year with her 93-year-old mother, was charged with battery after the tussle with Transportation Security Administration officials. She assumed her legal troubles were over when Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Fred Rotenberg last month agreed to dismiss the case against her if she stayed out of trouble for the next six months.

More than 200 people were briefly evacuated from a section of Bob Hope Airport Thursday after a “mix up” at a security checkpoint may have allowed a passenger through without being properly screened, an official said. Passengers were evacuated from the concourse, or the airline gate area of Terminal A - which includes Southwest and U.S. Airways - at about 11:15 a.m. and were brought back around to the security line, where they were re-screened, said airport spokesman Victor Gill.

The woman who got into a scuffle with security officers at Bob Hope Airport when they tried to confiscate a container of applesauce and other snacks has until Jan. 16 to condense her claim, otherwise, a frustrated judge may throw it out of U.S. District Court. It will be the third time Nadine Hays has filed an amended complaint in her lawsuit stemming from the 2009 incident. Her second amended complaint, in which she named more than 60 defendants - including the United States of America - was rejected by a U.S. District Court judge last month because it was too long and rambling.

The Transportation and Security Administration plans to roll out its PreCheck faster screening program to 60 more airports, including those in Burbank, Ontario and Long Beach, by the end of 2013, according to a  TSA  statement. Other California airports in line for PreCheck include Oakland, Sacramento, San Diego and San Jose. The agency also will increase the number of security lanes at the 40 airports already using PreCheck, including at  LAX  and John Wayne Airport in Orange County, the Los Angeles Times reported . Despite the expansion,  PreCheck  applies only to qualifying passengers who fly on selected airlines.

The woman who clashed with security officers at Bob Hope Airport while trying to board a plane with applesauce and other snacks in April 2009 is struggling to keep a civil rights claim against the Transportation Security Administration from being tossed out of federal court. Lacking formal legal training but acting as her own attorney, Nadine Hays hit another legal roadblock this month when a U.S. District Court magistrate rejected her attempts to file an amended complaint - her fourth in two years - alleging a conspiracy to tamper with video of the scuffle and conceal the identities of the TSA agents involved.

The Transportation Security Administration has halted a “long-standing” arrangement with Bob Hope Airport police when investigating unattended bags, raising safety and security concerns among officials at the airfield. In an April 19 email to his officers, the airport's police chief, Ed Skvarna, said TSA no longer will test swabs taken of unattended bags in the public areas of the terminal. That means Los Angeles County sheriff's bomb squad agents would have to be called in, creating a delay in determining if a bag contains explosive material.

A woman who tussled with Bob Hope Airport security officers over a container of applesauce for her elderly mother seems poised to draw the ire of another federal official - this time a U.S. District Court judge. Nadine Hays was arrested in 2009 after she refused to give up an ice chest containing the snack to Transportation Security Adminstration officials. Criminal charges stemming from that incident were dropped in October 2010, after Hays reported six months of good behavior. [For the Record, Oct. 24: An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated that TSA agents arrested Nadine Hays.

As If You Asked In the TV show "Star Trek: The Next Generation," the commander and crew of the starship Enterprise routinely confronted a powerful, malevolent enemy known as the Borg. The Borg were a sinister race with unlimited powers (almost). They raced through space, demolishing and recycling entire species, converting each individual to an unwilling organ donor, parts that were used to manufacture more Borg. The Borg would arrive on the scene, effortlessly overwhelm a civilization's most advanced defense systems, then demand surrender with the matter-of-fact pronouncement, "Resistance is futile."

Laura Sturza Although some contracted baggage screeners at Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport passed the test Thursday to be hired by the Transportation Security Administration, they are unhappy they had to wait while others tested before them. "We're experienced screeners and baggers -- a lot of these guys have worked the job quite a long time," Huntleigh USA Corp. employee Richard Alajajian said. "People taken off the street are being given the opportunity to work for the government whereas we've had to wait."

Burbank's Bob Hope Airport has begun offering PreCheck, the airport screening program that lets pre-approved travelers get through security faster. The Transportation Security Administration program is now in place at 103 airports across the U.S.; there are more than 450 commercial airports. In the Los Angeles area, LAX , Ontario , Long Beach , John Wayne/Orange County already have the program. That means travelers at those airports, if they are members of PreCheck, do not have to remove shoes, belts or jackets and can keep their liquids (still no more than 3 ounces)

A federal judge has warned a woman who tussled with a transportation security agent at Bob Hope Airport over her 93-year-old mother's applesauce that she must file an amended complaint. Nadine Hays of Camarillo has filed three motions - all of which have been opposed by her defendants - for more time to work on a second amended complaint against the Transportation Security Administration, Burbank Airport Police Department and the city of Burbank. She alleged in the first complaint, which was dismissed in May, that she was arrested in the 2009 incident based on a falsified police report and altered evidence.

Travelers at Bob Hope Airport on Tuesday expressed little concern about heightened Transportation Security Administration measures as they departed just before the busiest travel day of the year. "Nope. They are keeping me safe," Ellen Cowie of Tujunga said as she walked toward TSA officials at Terminal A. "I've been scanned before, and it did not bother me one bit. " Some passengers were asked to step aside for a manual pat-down, the most controversial of the measures that TSA instituted Nov. 1. But the airport does not have a full-body scanner, airport spokesman Victor Gill said.
