Arvada woman trying to stomach $500 fine for free airline snack, files complaint with customs
ARVADA, Colo. -- An Arvada woman said she's facing a $500 fine from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol after she saved a free apple she received from an airline on her way home from Paris. Crystal Tadlock said toward the end of her flight, attendants passed out apples in plastic bags. She wasn't hungry at the time so she threw the snack in her bag and planned to eat it during the second leg of her trip back to Denver.
