Orlando police say she went through her bag afterward and realized cash was missing before noticing a bulge in Johnson’s shirt pocket that turned out to be money.

Johnson was arrested despite saying the cash was his, as video showed otherwise.

The TSA said in a statement that Johnson was fired.

Johnson was released on bail from the Orange County jail.
