DALLAS (AP) - A former Miss USA says a security pat down at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport left her feeling molested and violated.

Susie Castillo, who was crowned in 2003, representing Massachusetts, was in tears following the April 21 experience. She did a video minutes later and posted it online.

Castillo was searched while preparing to fly home to Los Angeles.

The beauty queen turned actress says she decided against doing the body scanner over concerns about exposure to radiation. Castillo says a female Transportation Security Administration worker who checked her touched her crotch area several times.

Castillo later complained and was given a TSA comment card.

TSA spokesman Luis Casanova says the screener was questioned and did the pat down correctly. Casanova apologized for any discomfort to Castillo.
