VIDEO: Off duty cop saves TSA agent

This is the airport in Honolulu, where in a few seconds you'll see a T-S-A agent getting attacked.

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

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

He's a police corporal, vacationing from Pinole, California. Rogers had already taken off his shoes to go through the body scanner.

He told C-N-N affiliate KTVU he had heard the sounds of someone being punched, so he felt compelled to spring into action.

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

Police later identified the attacker as Wailana Haiola, a homeless woman.
