(Scroll down for video) An elderly woman flew into a rage after being told that she cannot board a plane with a bottle of soap, according to police in Kansas.

Sedgwick County police said that they have arrested 83-year-old Lila Mae Bryan, after being accused of punching a TSA agent who did not allow her to board the plane with her bottle of soap.

Bryan has been charged with one count of battery. She was booked into the Sedgwick County Jail, and was released from custody without bail.

According to the police investigation, Bryan and her husband Silas, 85, were at the Eisenhower International Airport in Wichita, when a 37-year-old TSA officer told her that she cannot take along a small bottle of soap.

Bryan said that she does not like the soap provided by hotels and always takes along her own. When the TSA agent insisted that it is against the rules to have the bottle of soap on the plane, Bryan became angry.

She then punched the officer.
