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.

Is there no end to the stupidity, arrogance and selfishness of the American culture? You are truly the skum of the earth as human beings go.

That's funny...that they cited him. His ID is good enough to get a written citation with his name on it...but not good enough to get on a plane?!

I am not above the law, and act accordingly and it is refreshing to see that he was treated as equally as the rest of us would have gotten treated if we were hateful and inebriated. We enjoy a greater atmosphere of freedom because of our rigid homeland security policies.

If he was a true Romo, he would have been terrified, then sulked all the way to his seat on the plane.

This jerk, and his hangers on from Salinas, CA, also had issues with some folks in Reno this past week as well. The Giants are a class organization. He better lose the attitude or he will be released.

This jerk, and his hangers on from Salinas, CA, also had issues with some folks in Reno this past week at all. The Giants are a class organization. He better lose the attitude or he will be released.

Hey Romo and Entourage! That's sweet karma back at you for threatening and harassing me at Harvey's in Reno on Dec. 28th for taking a picture of you. You were so wasted at the blackjack table that you had your thugs come over and tell me I "better delete that picture or else" because the Giants organization wouldn't appreciate it. Well, how are they feeling about it now that you're sorry ass is splashed on TMZ? What to do about those pics now? Go to Rehab and get rid of your thug friends - clean up your act. The Giants are a class act, but you're certainly NOT!
