QUEENS, N.Y. — Bernie Sanders’ former press secretary and current CNN political commentator Symone Sanders was detained by police at LaGuardia Airport Thursday, sources told PIX11 News.

It was about 7:30 a.m. Thursday when Sanders was asked by TSA agents to step out of line for a more detailed security check at Concourse D in LaGuardia’s Terminal B, sources said.

She allegedly refused and made “unreasonable noise” while “cursing in front of patrons and young children,” according to a law enforcement report to which PIX11 News obtained access.

She is accused of disorderly conduct and was issued a criminal summons, sources said.
