A woman was arrested at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas after she allegedly refused to wear a mask and shouted, “Let’s go Brandon.”

Katrina Alspaugh first drew attention Sunday at a security checkpoint where she attempted to strike an individual who pointed out she was not wearing a mask, according to a report.

Police became involved after Alspaugh was removed from an Allegiant Air flight for allegedly refusing to comply with a federal mandate requiring face coverings to be worn while on a plane.

Alspaugh yelled, “Let’s go Brandon” as she was removed, police said.

“Let’s go Brandon” refers to a slogan from a NASCAR race in which a journalist misreported the chant, “F*** Joe Biden” as praise toward winning driver Brandon Brown.
