NEWARK — Three days out of office and Chris Christie may have gotten the first major reminder that he ain't governor anymore.

While trying to cut through security at Newark Liberty International Airport, he was told by a TSA agent to get at the back of the line, according to CBS New York.

As governor, Christie had been able to bypass the lines.

Those days are gone.

As Christie put it last week, now he's “just another property taxpayer."

But the former governor isn't exactly one of the little people just yet. He'll continue to get a State Police escort for six months — one of the perks of being an ex-governor.

Christie was traveling with a trooper when the airport incident occurred, ABC 7 Eyewitness News reports.
