Bra causes headache for lawyer visiting Miami jail

An attorney claims she couldn't visit her client at a South Florida detention center because of the undergarment she was wearing. The attorney said an underwire bra set off a metal detector at the Miami Federal Detention Center earlier this month. Guards at the facility then wouldn't let the woman inside.

According to The Miami Herald, the attorney removed the bra in a bathroom and again tried to enter the detention center. This time, guards refused to let her inside because she wasn't wearing a bra.

The woman later e-mailed other attorneys about the incident.

Officials at the detention center declined to comment to the newspaper, as did the attorney who was involved.
