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.

“I need a subscription to the UK Daily Mail just to get all the news that doesn’t fit the lamestream media.”
Agree, if I didn’t see articles like this on FR from the UK media, I’d never learn of them. News that does not fit the liberal, big government agenda seems to evaporate in the USA.
One more job that a white person could not ‘qualify’ for in the hands of ‘black attitude’.
Give me a break.
And the fact that I'm undoubtedly racist.
Undoubtedly, we have reason for a class action lawsuit,
based on the evidence used in the past to determine the existance of discrimination in hiring.
The TSA, and the government in general, has a huge overrepresentation of the AA demographic compared to their general population ratios, so, obviously, there is discrimination going on in hiring for government jobs.
I want $10 million.

Was she rock’n a hoodie?
It was tense traveling to NYC last weekend.
I accept New York’s melting pot atmosphere but it was a bit much even for a tolerant freedom-loving American. TSA was a snap.
Instead, I found myself staying at a hotel where the Pakistani Physicians’ Forum was being held. A swarthy taxi driver sang unintelligible chants as he drove me to the airport. The bar was 98% swarthy men. The atmosphere was calm at the boarding gate despite the very black dude ranting loudly into his cell phone about the volunteer “soldiers” better have street smarts, not book smarts, and that the “war” was imminent.
Any other insight into NYC lately?
We will need to be HARD conservatives to overcome those that plague America.
