A one-armed boxer was arrested for assaulting police at La Guardia airport.Cops say Michael Constantino, who is from Queens, started a shouting match Friday morning at the Terminal C ticket counter.

The 35-year-old then punched one officer and bit another after being led away.

The light-heavyweight fighter born without a right hand was quarter-finalist in the 2002 Golden Gloves and also won “Boxer of the Night” honors at the competition.

Constantino sued the TSA in 2011, claiming he was denied a job because of his disability. The case was settled in 2012.

The officers are OK and Constantino was taken to the Elmhurst Hospital for evaluation.

Constantino has been charged with assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
