COLUMBUS, OH - A video posted Monday on YouTube shows what appears to be TSA agents testing passengers' drinks after they have already gone through the security checkpoint.

ABC15 reported this in July after the possibility came up, and now there's video of it actually unfolding that has gotten many people fired up.

"While waiting in the Columbus OH airport for our flight to Oakland, I couldn't help but notice the two TSA women that were 'testing' any and all liquids that people had in their hands," wrote the person who posted the video on YouTube. "Now remember that this is inside the terminal, well beyond the security check and purchased inside the terminal...just people waiting to get on the plane."

The wife and son of the person who uploaded the video left to buy something at the coffee shop, and then the TSA agents approached them when they returned, according to the video description.

"One of the TSA ladies said that they were checking for explosive chemicals (as we are drinking them)," said the video description.
