The zookeepers were hot on his trail, dammit!
GET OUT OF HIS MUHFFUGGIN WAY!
This is the shocking moment a man launched a vicious attack on airport security staff at Phoenix Sky Harbor International on Tuesday morning.
Tyrese Garner, 19, rushed through a security checkpoint and threw a flurry of punches at the airport staff who tried to tackle him to the floor, before he was arrested and slapped with multiple criminal charges.
Surveillance footage shows the man running through a metal detector, knocking down one TSA agent and taking a swing at another, who ducks and tries to wrestle him to the floor.
But the man charges through, punching another agent at least twice, until several agents tackle him to the ground.
While trying to take the attacker into custody, Garner allegedly kicked officers and writhed on the ground, the report stated.
Garner kicked a table and tried to wrestle away from officers, it was also reported.
One agent was hospitalized in the chaos while four others went to an urgent care clinic, the TSA later said. All the agents have since been released.
He was eventually removed from the airport on a gurney after fire personnel arrived to assist arresting officers.
Garner was charged with one felony count each of criminal trespassing and resisting arrest, as well as five counts of misdemeanor assault.
He was booked into a Maricopa County jail on suspicion of criminal trespassing, resisting arrest and assault. He is being held on a $1,500 bond.
