FARGO, N.D., Nov. 15 (UPI) -- Reality TV star Jennifer "JWOWW" Farley said via Twitter airport security at Hector International Airport in Fargo, N.D., made her feel "like a criminal."

The Forum of Fargo said the "Jersey Shore" cast member was in town for an appearance at The Hub nightclub Saturday night and ran afoul of Transportation Security Administration guards when she was preparing to board a flight home early Sunday.

"Fargo ND airport just treated me like a criminal," Farley said in her Twitter message. "Travel 2x a week and never went thru what I did here :("

"I wasn't randomly selected [for a pat-down] cuz I saw the tsa there pointing at me while I was getting a coffee 15 min prior," she said, adding the guards then asked her to "come with them" for a further search.

"I've been patted down a bunch n don't mind but after I'm getting on a plane seems odd and deliberate to me. Hate when people abuse authority," she said via Twitter.

TSA spokeswoman Jonella Culmer told The Forum the agency "strives to screen all passengers with dignity and respect while performing its security mission."

"TSA employs an intelligence-driven, risk-based security approach to screen the nearly 1.8 million passengers traveling daily. As part of the layered system, passengers may be subject to random screening measures at the checkpoint or the gate to ensure terrorists can't game the system," Culmer said.
