WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WTNH)– State police arrest someone after they tried to pass a checkpoint without an ID or a boarding pass.

Police took 20-year-old Deshommes Flynn into custody around 4PM on Wednesday. Authorities say he walked right by TSA officers and was heading towards the full body scanner machine, with no intention of stopping.

TSA officers and state troopers grabbed onto him, and tased him.

He was taken to Hartford Hospital and has been released on bond. He will be in court on Friday.
