State troopers arrested Oakland rapper Kamaiyah at a Connecticut airport Friday morning after she refused to remove her head cover, according to reports.
Authorities charged the 26-year-old performer with interfering with police and second-degree breach of peace after she reportedly became "aggressive" when she refused a TSA agent's request to remove her head cover. The cover had set off an alarm at Bradley International Airport's security checkpoint, but Kamaiyah did not allow the cover to be inspected.
"She was advised unless she did as she was told by TSA, she would not be allowed to proceed through security and not allowed to fly," a police report on the incident said.
The rapper, whose legal name is Kamaiyah Johnson, also ignored authorities' request to leave the airport and directed "vulgar language" at the TSA agent and trooper on the scene. Law enforcement then took her into custody, and she was released after she posted bond.
Johnson tweeted about the incident, but deleted the tweets not long after, according to reports.
