Bernie Sanders’ former press secretary, Symone Sanders, has been detained at LaGuardia Airport after the way she was acting in public.
The CNN political commentator Symone Sanders was detained by police around 7:30 am at LaGuardia Airport on Thursday. Sanders was asked to step out of line during a security check but got upset and refused.
She allegedly made an “unreasonable noise” and “cursed” in front of other people in the airport making a scene. According to law enforcement, Sanders is being accused of disorderly conduct and has been issued a criminal summons. Sanders is confused why the airport made such a big deal about how she acted.
According to foxnews:
Things quickly escalated for the political strategist and CNN commentator when she tried to get a bag on her flight.
Political strategist Symone Sanders is the latest victim of the recent spate of airlines-behaving-badly incidents.
Symone Sanders, a CNN political commentator and former press secretary for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., was reportedly detained by police after an outburst Thursday morning at LaGuardia Airport.
Sanders, 28, was in line at the security checkpoint when TSA agents asked her to step out of line, PIX 11 reported. Sanders reportedly started to curse “in front of patrons and young children.”
She was accused of disorderly conduct and given a summons, according to PIX 11.
Sanders has had issues at airports in the past.
American Airlines called the police on Sanders last year after an incident while she was trying to check her luggage minutes before a flight from Los Angeles, according to Essence.
Sanders tweeted she didn’t want to pay full price for a new ticket despite being a frequent flier of the airline. The incident apparently prompted customer service representatives to call authorities.
After the incident was apparently resolved, Sanders said she made the flight on time, but “didn’t understand why” the airline called police.
