You might think that trained TSA screeners would be above making fun of each other’s wee-wees. And you might think that a trained TSA screener would be able to let such adolescent teasing roll off. But you’d be wrong on both counts. Oh, and you how know those full-body scanners aren’t supposed to really reveal anything, um, untoward? Yeah, not so much:

A Miami International Airport federal security screener has been arrested for allegedly using a baton to beat up a co-worker. The source of their conflict, police say: mano-a-mano ribbing about the size of the screener’s genitalia.

Screener Rolando Negrin’s private body parts were observed by his Transportation Security Administration colleagues conducting training on the airport’s full-body imaging machines. A year of joking culminated on Tuesday night [a month ago], when Negrin attacked the co-worker at an employee parking lot, according to an arrest report.

Negrin stated he could not take the jokes any more and lost his mind, said the report, made public Thursday. He is charged with aggravated battery.
