Verne Troyer Comes Clean after Crazy Airport Tazing: 'I Stole His Hat'

"Austin Powers" star Verne Troyer captured video of a man being tasered by cops at LAX Airport.

Los Angeles had one of the latest strange occurrences in one of our nation's busiest airports as the Memorial Day weekend getaway gets underway.

A passenger was tasered in front of stunned travelers.

Cops say it started when the man was busted for refusing to cooperate with TSA agents.

As he was being cuffed by a cop, he broke free. The officer caught up with him and yelled repeated warnings, that's when he got tasered.

The officer could be heard yelling, "I'm going to tase you, sir! Get down on the ground!"

Cops say the guy was booked for resisting arrest and trespassing.

CBS News Travel Editor Peter Greenberg has some priceless advice if you're planning to fly this Memorial Day weekend.

He told INSIDE EDITION, "Just because you have a reservation, doesn’t mean you're getting on the plane. Make sure you have a boarding pass and you're at the gate at least an hour before because otherwise you may not exist. And they may offer you denied boarding compensation, but that doesn't mean you're going to get to where you want to go when you want to get there."
