A man was arrested at Sky Harbor International Airport for threatening to kill a female TSA agent because she is a woman.
Phoenix police report that on June 25 they responded to an unruly passenger at checkpoint B at Terminal 4 at Sky Harbor International Airport.
When officers arrived they found 29-year-old Mohamed Hussein, who was accused of threatening to kill a female TSA agent because she is female.
