NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities say eight taxi dispatchers at LaGuardia Airport have been arrested after an undercover bribery sting.

Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown says the scheme allowed drivers who paid cash to cut the line in the airport holding area as other drivers waited their turn.
Brown says the bribes were only $5 or $10 each — but it could add up to hundreds of dollars a day.
The defendants were working for an airport contractor.
Seven of them were arrested Wednesday morning when they showed up for what they believed was a training session.
