Being a TSA agent is looking like the type job you get when you want to be paid to be a creep.
Another weirdo Transportation Security Administration agent has been fired and arrested for molesting a passenger at New York’s LaGuardia Airport Tuesday night. 40-year-old Maxie Oquendo reportedly fondled a 21-year-old Korean exchange student after leading her to a restroom for an additional “screening” after having already gone through the TSA checkpoint.

The incident happened in a restroom in Terminal B around 8 p.m. after the agent allegedly told the victim she needed additional screening, 1010 WINS reported.
“The defendant is accused of an egregious abuse of his position as a government screener at LaGuardia Airport to sexually victimize a young woman. Such alleged conduct cannot, under any circumstances, go unpunished,” said Queens District Attorney Richard Brown.
Brown said the victim had walked out of the sterile checkpoint area and into an area where passengers do not need to be screened when the agent approached her and said she needed to be screened.
Once inside the bathroom, Brown said the agent fondled the woman even after she questioned whether he was allowed to do so.
Prosecutors said the victim objected saying, “You can’t scan me, but you can have a woman scan me because I am a girl.”
The 40-year-old pervert was arrested Thursday night and booked on sexual abuse, official misconduct, harassment and unlawful imprisonment charges. His bail was set at a measly $3,000.
