The federal Transportation Security Administration issued a statement Thursday saying Romo failed to provide proper identification at a document checkpoint and engaged in a dispute with TSA officers about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Officer Jose Hernandez says Las Vegas police issued the 29-year-old Romo a summons to appear in Las Vegas Justice Court. His court date wasn't immediately available.

The incident was first reported by KGO-TV in San Francisco with a photo showing Romo attending a Dec. 30 party in Las Vegas.

TSA spokesman Nico Melendez in Los Angeles says the security of other travelers wasn't compromised.
