WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

An 83-year-old Texas woman who got into a scuffle with a Wichita airport security agent will not face charges.

Wichita City Attorney Jennifer Magana said the case against Lila Bryan was dismissed Friday at the request of the security agent.

Bryan, of Mesquite, Texas, was cited by police May 31 for misdemeanor battery after she hit a Transportation Security Administration agent at Wichita's Dwight Eisenhower Airport. The TSA said Bryan became upset after the agent tried to confiscate a bottle of foaming hand gel that was too large to carry on the plane.

Bryan told The Associated Press after her arrest that she was exhausted and had forgotten to take her medication before the confrontation.

The losses and several slow starts have some former Shockers weighing in on ways to right the ship. One such former player is Antoine Carr who was in attendance in the loss to the Cougars and had plenty to say in a postgame interview. "You started out playing angry, that's how you became how...
