SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. —

A U.S. Transportation Security Administration screener has been cited for allegedly harassing a slow driver in Connecticut.

Police say 63-year-old Donald Eichler flashed a TSA badge and honked his horn in an effort to speed up the other driver. The woman called 911 and said she was frightened by his actions.

The man said Wednesday that the woman overreacted. He says she was driving 30 mph in a 40 mph zone in South Windsor, where he lives. He says he tapped the horn a few times and flashed a work identity card as other cars lined up behind him.

Eichler was pulled over Tuesday morning and issued a misdemeanor summons of vehicle driven to harass or intimidate. He is due to appear in Manchester Superior Court on Aug. 8.
