A Transportation Security Administration agent at La Guardia airport in New York was charged Friday with sexually groping a Korean exchange student on the pretext of checking her for weapons.
40-year-old Maxie Oquendo was arrested Friday. He took her to a restroom and frisked her. "You can´t scan me but you can have a woman scan me because I am a girl," the young woman reportedly told the agent.
According to authorities, he asked her to lift up her shirt and proceeded to touch her breasts and put his hands down her shorts. When he was done, he uttered into his security radio "she´s clear. She doesn´t have any wepons or knives".
