VIDEO: Traveler Takes On 10 TSA Agents In Brawl After Charging Checkpoint

Tyrese Roshawn Garner was hauled out of the airport secured to a gurney.

Phoenix, AZ – Security cameras captured the moment that a traveler barged through an airport security checkpoint while shoving and punching Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents (video below).

The unprovoked attack took place at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport’s D security checkpoint at approximately 9:40 a.m. on Tuesday, The Arizona Republic reported.

The City of Phoenix Aviation Department released a six-second clip of the incident on Friday.

The video showed 19-year-old Tyrese Roshawn Garner as he rushed through the metal detector and shoved one TSA agent to the ground.

He then charged at a group of agents standing nearby, punching at least four more of them in the process, according to court documents.

Investigators believe that Garner may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the brazen assault.

The agents managed to tackle Garner to the ground, and held him down until police arrived, The Arizona Republic reported.

But even after officers arrived at the scene, the suspect continued to writhe and kick, and attempted to wrestle out of the officers’ grasp, according to court records.

Police tackled Garner to the ground yet again, and kept him subdued until firefighters arrived with a gurney.

Garner was then secured to the gurney and carried out of the airport to a waiting patrol vehicle.

He has been charged with felony counts of resisting arrest and criminal trespassing, as well as five misdemeanor counts of assault, according to ABC News.

One of the injured agents was transported to a local hospital for treatment, and the other four injured agents were taken to an urgent care clinic, the TSA said.

They have all been released to recover at home.

“This unprovoked and brazen physical attack against our TSOs is unacceptable," the TSA said in a statement to FOX News. "We are grateful for our committed workforce and for the role they play in protecting the traveling public every day. We continue to monitor the safety and health of the TSOs involved in this incident and will cooperate fully with the ongoing investigation.”

I noticed that the TSA agents weren't very aggressive in trying to prevent the guy getting through. I'm an old school kinda guy and if you put your hands on me in an aggressive manner...bad things are going to happen...not to me. Just sayin'.

That one male TSA, standing there with head up his six while his female coworker took the brunt, needs to find another line of work....like being a Greeter at Walmart.

"Investigators believe that Garner may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the brazen assault". Possibly, more likely jungle fever. Animals!!!!

The female who got leveled deserves a commendation for being proactive. The agent to her left backed off and was more concerned about his blue latex glove. The rest of the group was too soft on the suspect.

I can't say they did a bad job however I can't say they did a good job. I understand it's a think quick situation. The guy after the checkpoint could of bent his non striking and striking arms and after making his face protected during initial blow safely push attacker back into the arms of the agent behind attacker stopping his momemtum. But like i said stuff happens quick and goal is to safely take care of situation and quickly so it's safe and protective to all involved. Subject and workers

Lets be honest: who among us has not wanted to simply ran though the waste of time TSA checkpoint, especially after waiting in the slow lines, taking off shoes, etc, because those "agents" have a history of abusing their so-called authority and they don't care if their actions results in you missing your flight?
