Woman Arrested for Allegedly Refusing to Wear Mask on Airplane

A woman was arrested at a Las Vegas airport last weekend after allegedly refusing to wear a face mask aboard a plane then screamed “Let’s go Brandon” and other obscenities as she was taken into custody, a report said.

Police said Katrina Alspaugh first caused a scene Sunday at the security checkpoint at McCarran International Airport when she tried to punch another passenger who complained she wasn’t wearing a face covering, KLAS reported.

Alspaugh then boarded an Allegiant Air flight — only to be removed by an airline worker because she allegedly wouldn’t comply with a federal requirement to wear a face mask while on the plane, the report said.

Police said as officers were escorting Alspaugh off the jet bridge, she yelled “Let’s go Brandon” — a bizarre substitute for the “F–k Joe Biden.”

Alspaugh was charged with violating airport rules.

So far in 2021, airlines have reported over 5,000 instances of misbehaving passengers to the Federal Aviation Administration. The majority of the complaints stem from people refusing to wear face coverings.
