An airport security worker was arrested after throwing a cup of hot coffee over a pilot who told her to stop swearing.
Transportation Security Administrator (TSA) Lateisha El, 30, was in the middle of a conversation with work colleagues at a JFK Airport terminal when she was interrupted by the American Airlines pilot.
Off-duty airman Steven Trivett, 54, was exiting terminal 8 when he overheard El swearing and asked her to tone down the profanity.
Trivett, of Butler, Tennessey, told them they should 'conduct themselves more professionally in uniform and not use profanity or the n-word,' according to the New York Post.
One TSA screener told Trivett to 'mind his own business' and swore at him.
Trivett then identified himself as a 'TSA officer' - an armed pilot - before trying to grab the ID tags of screener El to get her name.
But Port Authority police sources told the newspaper that El responded by hurling a 'full cup' cup of hot coffee over the pilot.
El, of Brooklyns East New York, was charged with harassment and misdemeanor-assault for the incident at 5am on March 28.

She did it because of Trayvon, you racists.
When are those doggone Canadians going to get a grip on themselves?
where’s “Butler, Tennessey”>?
The TSA gal may not be one of them, BUT, “El” and “Bey” are commonly associated with adopted last names with those who show allegiance to the Moorish Science Temple, a known prison gang.
Food for thought on what constitutes screening for TSA employees...
Did anybody read this in the NY Post or was it spiked by the PC Gestapo? I'm thinking I need a subscription to the UK Daily Mail just to get all the news that doesn't fit the lamestream media.
Dead give away.
Lateisha . . . hmmmmm . . . lemmeee guess . . . she’s probably of a protected class and descendant of former slaves.
They sure have been getting feisty lately since the Kenyan-born occupant of our White House and his racist hack in the AG office have considered “non-African Americans” scum.
My guess is that she has anger management issues.
Burger King meet JFK.
Lateisha El....Amish. Has to be Amish
Here is the Post article.
What it doesn’t say is whether Lateisha was fired after the incident. She was probably given a raise by the TSA.
Feisty isn’t the half of it. This is getting scary. I have a feeling this story will turn out to have the usual victim and the usual suspect:
a very long way from New York, apparently.
Clearly the pilot's fault. It can't be a TSA agent's fault...
