Kellyanne Conway has been arrested by a security guard for trying to use a women’s bathroom in Raleigh, N.C.

Now, North Carolina is facing widespread criticism and a federal lawsuit for instituting a law that would force transgender people to use the bathroom of the birth gender.

“I can’t believe the nerve of this rent-a-cop,” Conway said. “He’s probably an illegal,” she added.

Security guard José Luis Alejandro later apologized for his actions, but said it was easy to believe that Conway was transgender.

“I really didn’t know who she was,” said Alejandro. “But look at the that Adam’s apple and those arms? I thought she was a man for sure.”
