TSA employee arrested for assault after being teased about what body scanner revealed

With all the fuss over full body scanners in airports, I did not expect this.

According to The Smoking Gun, an airport security officer has been arrested after assaulting a co-worker. The spat arose because the accused was imaged in the scanner during a training exercise, exposing all his bits and pieces to his colleagues. As a result, the accused was allegedly teased mercilessly about what the image revealed.

Pretty grim.
