Video captures airport assault
HONOLULU (AP) — An off-duty California police officer who came to the rescue of a security agent being assaulted at the Honolulu airport was praised by federal authorities as video of the incident was released.
Corporal Justin Rogers of the Pinole Police Department was on vacation and had just taken off his shoes to go through security on March 30 when he spotted the assault.
Security footage released on Thursday shows a woman hitting a female Transportation Security Administration officer and putting her in a headlock. Rogers jumped over a small wall and threw her to the ground.
