AN airport security screener has been suspended for assaulting a colleague who joked about him having small genitalia after he walked through a scanner.

Rolando Negrin, 44, was arrested yesterday over the assault at Miami International Airport on Wednesday.

According to the police report, Mr Negrin said he had been subjected to jokes about having a small penis “on a daily basis” ever since he walked through a “whole-body” image scanner as part of a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) workplace training session.

It was unclear when that training session took place.

After work on Wednesday, Mr Negrin confronted colleague Hugo Osorno, 34, in an airport car park.

He then allegedly pulled out a police baton and started hitting Mr Osorno before telling him to get down on his knees and apologise.

Mr Negrin told officers that he “could not take the jokes any more and lost his mind”.

He was arrested on an aggravated battery charge when he showed up for work yesterday and was taken into custody in Miami-Dade.

TSA spokesman Jonathan Allen said today that Mr Negrin has been suspended and an internal inquiry was being launched.
