Police use Taser on 2 people during fight at Atlanta airport TSA checkpoint

ATLANTA — Several people are facing charges after a wild fight ended in the use of Taser at the Atlanta airport.

According to Atlanta police, three people were attempting to enter the TSA checkpoint on Tuesday morning at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. One of the passengers didn’t have identification, which led to an argument between the group and the TSA employee, police said.

According to witnesses, the three suspects were disruptive and speaking disrespectfully to the TSA employee when a bystander said something to the suspects about their behavior. In response, police said at least two of the suspects attacked the bystander.


Officers arrived and used a Taser to subdue two of the suspects. The third suspect surrendered without force.

Videos posted to social media showed the fight and the use of the Taser.
