The Saints left Atlanta with some egg on their face last week. They also got some egg on the team bus – for real — that took them from the airport to their hotel.
Monday, workers at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport announced that the employee worker who threw the egg quit his job.
“The lone employee suspected of hitting the New Orleans Saints charter bus with two or three eggs last Wednesday has quit his restaurant job. Department of Aviation officials at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport confirmed that after being questioned by police, the worker quit. The employee’s security badge has been deactivated, revoking all access to the Airport, and the company will be fined. The Department of Aviation has now closed its investigation,” the airports announcement reads.
WGNO Sports Director Ed Daniels spoke with the driver of one of the two busses shortly after the egging.
Bud Driver Clarence Lester told Ed that he’d had his busses hit with eggs before but not in a place like an airport where people expect security to be at a premium.
“I look at it this way, I felt like I was at the most secure place here in Atlanta, on the tarmac at the airport where everybody has to be cleared, secured,” Lester told Ed.
