An off-duty California police officer is being credited for going to the rescue of a security agent being assaulted at the Honolulu airport.
Corporal Justin Rogers of the Pinole Police Department was on vacation and had just taken off his shoes to go through security March 30 when he spotted the assault, the Contra Costa Times reported.
Security footage released Thursday showed a woman hitting a female Transportation Security Administration officer and putting her in a headlock. Rogers jumped over a small wall and threw the assailant to the ground, the newspaper reported.
Rogers identified himself to responding TSA agents and was given a pair of handcuffs to put on the suspect, Pinole police Cmdr. Pete Janke told the Contra Costa Times.
