Rolando Negrin, a TSA employee at Miami International Airport, was arrested for aggravated battery after he attacked a colleague, in response to coworkers making fun of his penis size during an anti-terror body scanning machine training session.
According to a local NBC report, sources say Negrin became extremely embarrassed and angry by a supervisor’s inappropriate jokes as he walked through the machine.
A police report obtained by NBC states that Negrin later attacked a colleague (it was not specified whether the victim was his supervisor) with a police baton in a parking lot, and told the victim to kneel down and say “sorry.” After being arrested, Negrin told police that coworkers often made fun of him.
Full body scanners have raised privacy concerns since they were first introduced in airports and this is not the first incident of the body scanner being misused. A month ago we wrote about another TSA employee who was detained and questioned by police after inappropriately ogling a female colleague “naked” in the new anti-terror body scanner.
