NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - A flair for fashion got a Jacksonville teenager in trouble in Norfolk.
Vanessa Gibbs was not allowed to board a flight at Norfolk International Airport because her purse had a gun design on it.
A TSA agent told her it was a federal offense.
"It's in the shape of a gun. I'm like, it's a design on the purse. How is it a federal offense?" said Gibbs.
Agents determined the gun was not real, but told Gibbs to check the bag or hand it over.
She missed her scheduled flight on Southwest Airlines but was put on a later flight.
The TSA stands by the rule, saying replica weapons have been banned since 2002.
