Police: Man chokes woman in Austin airport line to ‘take Devil to hell’

AUSTIN -- A woman waiting in the security line with two children at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport on Saturday was grabbed from behind by a man who put her in a choke hold, saying he was told to “take the Devil to hell,” according to the man’s arrest affidavit.

The man, identified by authorities as Derek Tyler Chapman, 23, was arrested and faces a misdemeanor charge of assault with injury.

Just before 6:20 a.m., Chapman was standing behind a woman at an airport screening checkpoint when he suddenly put his hand over the woman’s mouth and wrap his other arm around her throat, a Transportation Security Administration officer told police.

The woman, who told police she did not know Chapman, pushed him away and he released her, according to the affidavit. She told police she had pain her neck and wanted to press charges but that she needed to catch her flight.
