Ricky Schroder

in Altercation

with Airport Worker

EXCLUSIVE

0225_rick_schroder_article_pcn
Former child actor Ricky Schroder -- famous for his role on the 80s sitcom "Silver Spoons" -- assaulted an LAX airport worker in the middle of a busy terminal this week ... all because she wouldn't let him board with 3 bags ... at least that's what the woman told police.

Law enforcement tells TMZ ... airport police were called to the scene early Monday morning following the alleged altercation.

The woman's story ... she was checking boarding passes when Ricky attempted to go through security with three bags ... when the limit is two.

The airport worker says Ricky then slapped her hand when she reached for his boarding pass.

When cops arrived, they interviewed both parties. No arrests were made and no report was taken.

Ricky's lawyer, Marty Singer, tells TMZ ... the woman was rude and confrontational when she told him he had too many bags.  Singer says the woman hit Ricky's hand and his phone went flying.  Ricky lunged to grab his phone and she screamed, "Assault!" 

Singer says there are independent witnesses to corroborate Ricky's story and if Ricky did what she said he would have been arrested.

TMZ obtained video of the scene moments after the confrontation ... in which the worker tells her side of the story.

When you have your own private Plane there rarely are issues at the airport. except what time to take off.

Who does this little twerp think he is? What a nerve that he thinks there are special laws for him. That he ran crying to his lawyer only shows how guilty he is. Support the TSA people, they're working for all of us.

You know, when you hire Marty Singer, and he was never your personal lawyer from the get go, you done did something wrong. Celebrities only hire him when they know for a fact that they want him to personally attack the person just watch, it never fails. He's not the goody two shoes he wants people to know.

Her story seemed believable until she got to the part at the end where assault is only contingent on how long it takes her manager to arrive at the scene.
She explains nothing happened because her manager took so long to get there.
He should be happy he didn't get stripped and probed like 90 percent of most elderly women and children that have run in with the TSA

a) I believe him. She's making up the whole assault thing. Probably realised he was a (former) celebrity.

b) Pull in your head and check your extra bags in, like everyone else has to Ricky. There are good reasons for the bag restrictions..

I think her story sounds plausible and I believe it over Ricky's. I think she is being too authoritarian though. Pushing away someone's arm is not really noteworthy assault. That is why the police let it go I suppose.


Ricky did probably try to run past her with extra bags, because it is stupid how they make you put your bags under the plane and then they get lost and they charge you extra for them. She probably was yelling sir let me see your pass, and he tried to shrug her off.


I wonder if he ever got on the plane with the extra bags? It was annoying how everyone else was being very sycophantic towards her, like they are suddenly the good kids instead of the bad kid.


His story makes no sense. How could he catch a phone that she knocked out of his hand and then hit her instead by accident?


I think the process of flying is just too stressful any more and people lose their cool in trying to deal with it.

Ricky Schroder is a punk. True story: My brother wrestled him in HS and he was ao scared of him whipping his ass again, he put on 10 pounds to jump into the next weight lard class just so he wouldn't have to go up against him again. Guess he's taking it out on TSA women now. *****.

That's what happens when you fly commercial. Her story was bullsh*t because the cops did nothing.

I bet if Denzel tried to walk through the gate with 3 bags, her ugly black ass wouldn't have said anything about the bags...just something like, "He be a positive rowrl module for the chillchin."
