ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

An official with Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport told CBS Atlanta News on Monday that the lone airport restaurant worker who was responsible for egging a New Orleans Saints bus has quit his job.

It all started Wednesday with a tweet from Saints tight end Jimmy Graham. He tweeted, "Bus got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers. Classy! "RISE Up" smh."

Myrna White said the employee, who she did not name, is suspected of hitting the charter bus with two or three eggs.

Department of Aviation officials at the airport confirmed that after being questioned by police, the employee quit his job.

Officials said 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.
