TSA Employees Trash South Beach Hotel Room, Shoot Guns in Air
Two Transportation Security Administration officers are under arrest after trashing a South Beach hotel room last night and then shooting off guns into the air. The shots first rang out at about 11:15 last night near a hotel on the 800 block of Collins Avenue.
The Miami Herald reports that police arrived to find shell casings scattered on the ground, and after calling out the SWAT team and talking to witnesses quickly deduced that the shooter was in the hotel. They then arrived at the hotel room of Jeffrey Piccolella and Nicholas Anthony Puccio only to find the room trashed and the pair apparently drunk.
Both men are employed by the Department of Homeland Security's Transportation Security Administration.
Police found a gun in the room, and one of the men admitted to being drunk.
