The passenger was travelling on Delta Airlines from Paris to the US when the incident occurred.
Crystal Tadlock, the female passenger in question, chose not to eat the apple they were given when onboard the flight.
She instead put it in her hand luggage and decided to eat it at a later date.
Yet when she landed in Minneapolis for her connecting flight to Denver, she was stopped by U.S. Customs and Border Protection after her bag was randomly searched.
It was then that she was given the huge fine of $ 500 (£350) on the spot.Daily Express :: Travel Feed
