An official with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is facing serious legal trouble after being arrested in Atlanta on an outstanding warrant.

Maxine McManaman, the TSA Assistant Federal Security Director, was taken into custody on December 28 by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The arrest follows a warrant issued by the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office in Florida. The allegations against McManaman and her alleged accomplice, Delroy Chambers Sr., involve the exploitation of a relative suffering from dementia.

The charges claim that they forged documents, including a quitclaim deed, to transfer ownership of a property belonging to the elderly relative to themselves.

Port St. Lucie Police assert that the duo falsified signatures on the quitclaim deed, even though the relative, due to their medical condition, could not have signed it.

Investigations revealed that the individual was in Atlanta on the date mentioned in the forged documents.

Delroy Chambers Sr. had previously been arrested on December 20 in Port St. Lucie on charges related to the exploitation of an elderly or disabled adult, simple neglect, and forgery.

He was released on bond following his arrest.

McManaman, now facing a third-degree felony charge of forgery, was apprehended upon arriving in Atlanta on an international flight.

A TSA employee since November 2002, McManaman held a management-level position at the airport.

In response to the incident, a TSA spokesperson emphasized the agency’s commitment to high professional and ethical standards.

The spokesperson stated:

“TSA holds its employees to the highest professional and ethical standards and has no tolerance for misconduct on or off duty. Any employee who fails to meet our fundamental ethical standards is held accountable.”

McManaman has been placed on leave as the legal process unfolds, pending further investigation. She is currently held at Clayton County Jail in Jonesboro, Georgia.
