Miami, FL—A Transportation Security Administration (TSA) worker endured incessant humiliation after walking through one of the new high-tech security scanners at Miami International Airport (MIA). Seemingly unable to cope the repetitive workplace humor, which consisted of jokes regarding his “small genitalia,” the TSA employee attacked a co-worker in the parking lot. The violent episode occurred in the MIA employee parking lot on Tuesday, May 4, 2010, according to information provided by MSNBC Miami.

TSA employee Rolando Negrin, 44, apparently walked through one of the airport’s new and controversial security scanners during a training session. Upon doing so, his unidentified supervisor began to tease him. His supervisor and other co-workers continuously made fun of him with regard to his small penis.

Negrin, equipped with a police baton, reportedly followed a fellow worker into the employee parking lot after ending his shift Tuesday. He reportedly struck his unidentified co-worker on the arm and back, “then told the victim to kneel down and say ‘your sorry’”, the police report stated. It was fear that seemingly pushed Negrin’s coworker to obey his wishes and apologize for the unappreciated humor.

Police officials arrested Negrin when he arrived to work the next day. According to the police report, “[Negron] stated he could not take the jokes anymore and lost his mind.” He was subsequently booked in Miami-Dade County jail for aggravated assault.
