George Loren Thompson was charged after he threatened to kill a Somali man.

Felony charges have been filed against an off-duty TSA worker accused of threatening to kill a Somali man Monday night.

Minneapolis Police arrested 63-year-old George Loren Thompson after they said they heard him screaming threats and chasing the victim in the Cedar Riverside neighborhood. They said he was drunk and had two loaded guns on him, along with a permit to carry.

The victim told police it all started when he was getting into his car on Cedar Avenue. That’s where he said Thompson, whom he had never met, asked, “Are you Somali?”

When the victim said yes, Thompson allegedly responded, “Come here. I am gonna f—ing kill you.”


Christopher Burley, a screener in Little Rock, is alleged to have stolen painkillers from a passenger’s medicine bottle.

When a female passenger noticed painkillers missing from her purse after going through a security checkpoint, an investigation was prompted. Later, a TSA official found the missing pills they say Burley tried to hide.

According to employees at the airport, it was all caught on camera, too.
