The ORIGINAL Strange But True Aviation News

6 Apr

Oh, those kwazy TSA screeners!  Kids,  I thought I’d heard it all with Transportation Security Administration screeners, but this one — a story on MyFoxDc.com about a screener allegedly running a prostitution ring — has to take the cake.  Bryant Jermaine Livingston, 39, was arrested at Washington Dulles International Airport. He faces up to a year in jail if convicted.

The probably thought they were rock stars. Two TSA screeners who work at Palm Beach International Airport were arrested after allegedly trashing a Miami hotel room and shooting guns out of the window, reports USA Today.  The pair were charged with criminal mischief and use of a firearm while under the influence.

What it something I said?  Lateisha El, a screener at JFK Airport, was arrested after allegedly throwing a cup of hot coffee at an American Airlines pilot after he suggested she not use profanity and speak loudly in front of travelers, reports the Daily Mail. The coffee was thrown after the pilot tried to look at El’s ID to get her name.

TSA caught this one. A Delta Air Lines flight attendant was removed from a flight from Buffalo to Atlanta after TSA screeners at Buffalo Niagara International Airport noticed he was behaving irrationally, reports Buffalo News.  The flight was delayed three hours, and the incident is under investigation.

She must have *really* needed that drink! Peggy S. Albedhady-Sanchez was arrested after being denied more alcohol on a US Airways flight from Charlotte to Fort Myers, Fla., reports USA Today. She allegedly kicked and spit on the crewmember who denied her the drink, then slapped another flight attendant and kicked another one in the groin.

Who’s sorry now? As a follow-up to the story above, Albedhady-Sanchez apologized for her actions on the flight, saying she didn’t remember the incident and blamed it on medication and personal problems, reports USA Today.

I’m tired of this motha*****n snake in my motha*****n plane!! Pilot Braden Blennerhassett of Australia had to perform an emergency landing after a snake came out of his dashboard and crawled around his leg, reports the Washington Post.

We’ll end the week with this story from Alltop.com that shows art created from scissors confiscated at TSA airport screening checkpoints. Enjoy!
