Transit cops grill mentally disabled man at airport 

WHAT: Two Transportation Security Administration agents singled out a mentally disabled man, Drew Mandy, who is 29 but has the mental capacity of a 2-year-old.

HOW BAD: At the Detroit airport, they patted down his adult diapers and confiscated a toy hammer he has carried for decades, but let him keep a ball.

WHAT’S BEING DONE: A TSA official apologized after Mandy’s father wrote a letter and complained, and the agency vowed to retrain its staff based on the incident.
