TSA worker with prior record accused of assault

Apparently harassment and stalking are not disqualifying offenses for TSA employment.

A TSA security worker, accused of abducting and sexually assaulting a woman, had previously been convicted of misdemeanor harassment and stalking.

TSA employee Randall King agreed to drive a woman home from the airport.

Instead, King took her to a MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) station parking lot and placed novelty handcuffs on her.

Investigators said he drove her 50 miles away to his home in Troup County and sexually assaulted her. The woman told police that King gave her a suicide note, his car and let her go, investigators said.
