A visibly frustrated traveler pulled down his pants during a pat down by a TSA agent at a security checkpoint in the Salt Lake International Airport, Tuesday, November 23, 2010.

It took a few weeks, but this photo I took at the Salt Lake City Airport just took off. It just got posted on BoingBoing, but without any information as to where it came from. We were shooting this pat down and the traveler was visibly frustrated at how long it was taking. As the TSA agent prepared to search the guy’s waistband, he dropped his pants. The TSA agent seemed a little stunned.

We tried to talk to the traveler when he was finished with the search, but he ran off to his gate, declining to talk to us.
