World Series
hero Sergio Romo was handcuffed New Year's Day at the Las Vegas airport  ... TMZ has learned -- after allegedly becoming belligerent with a TSA officer.

Law enforcement sources tell us, the San Francisco Giants pitcher was detained by cops because he couldn't provide the proper ID to clear security.

We're told Romo then got into it with a TSA agent -- becoming "angry and aggressive."  Cops then swooped in and cuffed him.

Romo was taken to the police station at the airport , where he was cited for violating airport rules and then released. Romo was not allowed to fly following the incident, and was subsequently escorted off airport grounds.

According to law enforcement sources, Romo appeared to be under the influence.

Not a good week for athletes named Romo.

Doubly sad: On the one hand a nice guy who does "look illegal" gets hassled. OTOH a gazillionaire who thinks the rules don't apply to him.

Can't say I'm a big fan of how the TSA conducts business. On the other hand, lotsa bad behavior from "entitled" celebs.

TSA agents have become ego ridden *******s. Watched an agent give all kinds of attitude to a woman and her child, but when the lady said something back...all hell broke loose. When all of us passangers stood up for her, the TSA agent threaten to "shut down the gate". Bitch was talking out of her ass!

I'm sure Romo messed up here but don't assume because TSA says it happened like that,that it did. Go watch some videos at youtube at how these under trained, self important, idiots treat Americans whose only sin is the need to fly. Read some accounts of what real law abiding citizens go through on a daily basis under the guise of national security. I'll say it again, TSA sucks.
