A man was arrested in Miami’s airport on Wednesday after attacking a homeland security officer at a TSA checkpoint on the airport’s D concourse which serves American Airlines around 12:30 p.m.
The two men fought to the floor as Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents helped wrestle him to the ground. It is believed that the officer used a stun gun on the suspect in order to take him into custody.
The passenger had approached the uniformed officer and began shouting, “You don’t want me! You don’t want me!” and “slapped at the officer’s hands.” The officer took out his baton.
A minute into this video posted on Twitter shows the altercation from another angle.
