When people complain about airport security measures intruding on their privacy, they’re usually worried about X-ray scanners and pat-down searches. Turns out they should’ve been wary of the air marshals instead — or at least this one particularly sleazy Baltimore-based air marshal.

Adam Joseph Bartsch was arrested in the Nashville Airport last week after a man caught him taking a picture up a female passenger’s skirt as she boarded a Southwest flight. She grabbed the cell phone camera away from him and alerted a flight attendant; Bartsch admitted to police that he had indeed been taking upskirt photos of passengers. He was released on $10,000 bail and is due back in court in November. I’ll say it again: Ugh.

Air marshals are supposed to make us all feel safer on airplanes because they have guns so they can shoot the bad guys. It’s unclear what happens when the marshals themselves are the bad guys.
