Here's a few people brawling on a Spirit Airlines flight after they landed in Puerto Rico. Apparently it was all about wearing masks or not and someone was tasered. But who cares, let's just have a big fight on the airplane instead of letting people get off and go about their business.
Caught on Camera: A fight over whether or not to wear a mask onboard a Spirit Airlines plane that had just arrived in Puerto Rico led to a woman - who police say was the aggressor - being tased by police who are considering filing charges.

According to Puerto Rico police, around 7pm yesterday, at the Luis Munoz Marin airport in San Juan, passenger Nyasy Veronique Payne “provoked an incident by acting in what witnesses called an agressive, hostile, & defiant behavior.” She hit 28yo Javier Lopez Cruz, police say.
CBS News spoke with the man who filmed the video. He says the fight broke out because the woman refused to follow the airlines protocol to wear a mask.
The flight originated in Newark, New Jersey according to police in Puerto Rico.

To be clear: the woman who threw the first punch is allegedly the same person who refused to wear a mask who then ended up being tased by police because of her belligerent behavior which is seen on video here.
Not long after I posted this video, I spoke to Alfredo, a man who is seen in the video wearing a purple shirt. He is Puerto Rican. He said there’s more to the story. Alfredo says the woman seen on video throwing punches, was punched by 1 man before she punched anyone.
Alfredo says during the flight, a young man was moving about the plane, switching seats and not wearing a mask. Flights attendants, according to Alfredo, instructed the man to stop switching seats & to wear his mask. The man didn’t stop. When the plane landed police were called.

3 women who Alfredo says appeared to be traveling with the young man were also not masks, most of the flight, & were moving around while the sets belt sign was on. The flights attendants - Alfredo says - asked the women to stay seated a wear a mask.
One on the ground, Alfredo says 3 men began yelling homophobic & racial slurs at the 3 women who are black. 1 man, Alfredo says, hit one of the women, who then started punching. That’s the woman who’s seen on video throwing punches when the police make their way into the plane.
NOW: the female tourist onboard the plane - seen on video punching passengers - has been arrested & is expected to spend the night in jail. (See my twitter thread for an eyewitness account from a Puerto Rican man who says the woman was punched & harassed before she hit anyone).
Now is a great time for a LOCK HER UP chant!!
