Katrina Alspaugh had a rough day at Las Vegas Airport last weekend after getting into a fight at the security checkpoint and eventually being hauled off her Allegiant Airlines flight screaming, “Let’s go Brandon!”…all because she refused to wear her mask.
Anti-Masker Screams “Let’s Go Brandon” As She Is Pulled Off Allegiant Airlines Flight In Las Vegas
On November 21st, Alspaugh was scheduled to travel on Allegiant Airlines from Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas, but before she even reached her gate, drama ensued.
Alspaugh is an anti-masker and walked into the terminal not wearing a mask. Although the TSA apparently did not remind her to put her mask on, another traveler did at the security checkpoint. She responded by trying to punch him. That should have been the end of her day right there, but the passenger declined to press charges and she was permitted to continue to her gate.
Although she boarded her Allegiant Airlines flight, she was removed prior to takeoff for refusing to wear her mask. Police arrived as Alspaugh was standing in the jet bridge. As she was wheeled up the boarding ramp in a wheelchair, she screamed obscenities as well as “Let’s go Brandon!” The phrase has become a substitute for a vulgar labeling of President Joe Biden.
Alspaugh was taken to the Clark County Detention Center, booked, and released. She faces a steep fine from the Federal Aviation Administration as well as misdemeanor disturbance charges.
Attempting to punch a passenger at the security checkpoint then screaming obscenities as she was wheeled off the flight…quite a day’s work. Whatever your view on masks, Alspaugh’s jejune behavior should be met with scorn. Hopefully a hefty fine will remind her that flying is a privilege, not a right.
