SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Sacramento International Airport officials say local law enforcement authorities used Tasers on a man who refused to complete the security screening process Tuesday afternoon.

Airport spokeswoman Karen Doron says Sacramento County sheriff's
deputies shocked the man several times with stun guns after Transportation Security Administration officials asked them to intervene around 1:30pm.

Doron says the man, who has not yet been identified, is no longer at the airport, but could not immediately say where he had been taken.

Doron says the incident delayed the security checkpoint for a while, but no passengers missed flights.

TSA spokesman Nico Melendez says he cannot comment on the incident.
