NEW YORK — Police say an angry passenger punched and kicked an airline employee while looking for his bag at New York's LaGuardia Airport.

Port Authority police say Antonio Sappleton attacked the United Airlines employee around 8 p.m. Wednesday, sending him to a hospital with a split lip and loose teeth.

Police say Sappleton became agitated when the 23-year-old employee asked for his checked bag ticket.

They say he punched the employee repeatedly and kicked him multiple times once he fell to the ground.

Port Authority officers arrested Sappleton outside the terminal. The 22-year-old Yonkers man is charged with assault and harassment.

Information on his lawyer wasn't immediately available.
