The Security Service (Säpo) officer was checking in for a flight back to Sweden with Carl Bildt when she got into an argument with a female security guard at the airport, Metro reports.
Enraged by a decision to confiscate a bag containing wine and chocolate, Bildt's bodyguard began repeatedly screaming the words "fuck you" at the security guard.
The incident led to the bodyguard missing her flight, leaving the foreign minister to travel home unprotected.
The Säpo officer has also been accused of drinking alcohol while on duty and ordering beer on a flight to the United States. She has now been taken off active bodyguard duty and transferred to an administrative post, according to a report released on Monday by a police disciplinary committee.
