Authorities say a TSA supervisor was arrested for having sex with minors in the Dominican Republic.

According to ABC New York, Vernon Lythcott was arrested Friday morning at JFK International Airport. Lythcott is accused of having sleeping with two 15-year-old girls he met in the Dominican Republic in January for $80. Lythcott and the two men he was with were also accused of sexually assaulting one of the girls in a hotel room.

Though he admits to having sex with the girls, he says he thought they were older. Lythcott was arraigned yesterday and has been placed on indefinite suspension while TSA begins the termination process.
