“It seems everyday there is a new story about a crazy TSA employee. This time, they hired a guy who lead a prostitution ring. This is the type of person giving you a full body pat down.” –KTRN
The cesspool of corruption that is the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has vomited up yet another class-act officer with criminal tendencies. MyFoxDC.com reports that 39-year-old Bryant Jermaine Livingston, a former TSA manager at Dulles International Airport near Washington, D.C., was recently arrested for allegedly running a prostitution ring.
According to reports, Livingston had allegedly been operating the prostitution ring out of the Crowne Plaza Hotel in nearby Silver Spring, Maryland. Hotel workers say they repeatedly witnessed large groups of men and women entering and leaving Livingston’s rented rooms on several occasions, and finally decided to call the police. And what was discovered as a result appears to confirm their suspicions.
On February 15, 2012, responding officers arrived on the scene after hotel management complained of unusual activity at Livingston’s room, and found “11 people inside the room [including] three naked females and four males attempting to get dressed.” They also observed “[m]ultiple people [...] laying on the two beds and other people [...] sitting in chairs and standing in the room.”
The officers proceeded to arrest Livingston, who had worked for the TSA since 2002, and later charged him with five counts of prostitution. After interviewing several of the individuals who were in the room at the time when police showed up, it was quickly learned that Livingston was charging individuals $100 to enter the hotel room for sex, and $25 for sex acts.
Livingston was subsequently fired from his position at the TSA, and now faces trial on May 8 for his alleged crimes. In the meantime, neither he nor his attorney have agreed to comment on the case. And the TSA says it is complying with all law enforcement requests involving the case.
