Man arrested after punching TSA screener in Indy

A Connecticut man has been arrested after exchanging words and punching a TSA screener at a security checkpoint at Indianapolis International Airport.

According to a report from airport police, John A. Christina, 51, Simsbury, Conn., was charged with battery as a misdemeanor in connection with the incident about 2:50 p.m. Tuesday at the Concourse B checkpoint.

Christina, who could not be reached for comment today, was released from jail on $150 bond and scheduled in Marion Superior Court 10 on Dec. 13.

This John will likely have to pay a fine, say $1,000 on the high side. While this John might face a fine of $11,000. $1,000 is a lot less than $11,000 if you see what I am getting at here.

    I guess it’s cheaper to be hauled off my the cops than to try to walk away. Creative solution!
