Vacationing officer jumps into action to help a women in need

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A police officer on vacation in Hawaii steps into action.

Surveillance video shows a woman trying to push her way through the flight crew security section.

As the agent struggles to control the woman, Justin Rogers steps in.

He had already taken off his shoes to go through the body scanner.

Rogers says he heard the sounds of someone being punched, so he felt he needed to spring into action.

Worried he might be confused for the attacker, he immediately identified himself as a police officer and helped airport security put the suspect in handcuffs.

Police identified the attacker as a homeless woman.
