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...
“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.
“You can’t professionalize unless you federalize.”....Tom Daschole............
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.

TSA = Tyrannical Secret Authority
Obama’s Brownshirt Training Program
Maybe she jus’ be hab’n her mumflies.
Conservatives are following “Roadhouse” rules of conduct.
We’ll be nice until it’s time not to be nice.
Then the agitators will find out what 12 to 1 means.
I think Susan Collins also used that remark, in a supportive way of federalizing, I mean.
Let me guess. She’s getting a two week paid vacation out of the deal.
Definitely ABW Syndrome.
Butler, Tennessey, is in Johnson County, Tennessey, in the extreme NE corner of the state—so as close to New York as you can get in Tennessey. But not close enough, evidently.
Didn’t you know just by reading the title that it was one of those Amish again?
Well I can see where El's Lawyer will take this one. The story sez the Pilot tried to Grab El's badge, THEN she(?) threw the coffee. So El's lawyer will claim self defense because the Pilot assaulted El.
You just know that is how it will go down... Which is why I say we need a culling of the lawyer heard held annually. We setup bait at a McDonalds: a large pot of Hot Coffee and we spill it on a disabled minority woman who is in the USA illegally. When the lawyers start circling the joint we trap 'em and ship 'em off to testing labs so they can be used in place of more likeable vermin like Rats and Cockroaches.
I like the thought and have said much the same thing but it’s 8:1. Still more than enough and I just bought two AR-15s and have a metric buttload of ammo coming in the mail so I will better be able to do my part.
War On Words: NYC Dept. Of Education Wants 50 Forbidden Words Banned From Standardized Tests
‘Dinosaur,’ ‘Birthday,’ ‘Halloween,’ ‘Poverty,’ ‘Divorce’
Among Those Suggested
March 26, 2012 7:04 PM
The New York City Department of Education is waging a war on words of sorts, and is seeking to have words they deem upsetting removed from standardized tests.
Words that suggest wealth are excluded because they could make kids jealous. Poverty is also on the forbidden list. Thats something Sy Fliegal with the Center for Educational Innovation calls ridiculous
DC Liberal echo Chamber.............
I can forgive the UK Dailymail their geography transgressions as long as they continue to shine a light on Obama's TSA Gestapo.
