The flight crew grew concerned and contacted the police stationed at McCarran International Airport to have Wall and friends removed, according to Michael Rodriguez, a public information officer in the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
“All we were there to do was facilitate that,” said Rodriguez. No arrests were made. The officers on the scene deemed that no crime had been committed, but Wall and Co. were removed from the flight “without incident” and did not rejoin the commercial flight, added Rodriguez.
The Washington Wizards had no comment about the oral kerfuffle. John Wall also had no comment, as reported by Washington Post sports reporter Jorge Castillo.
Rodriguez did not know what the argument was about and how many complaining passengers were involved. But it as it turns out, escorting people off of planes is no biggie in Vegas. That type of thing happens every day, multiple times a day.
“There’s nothing remarkable or notable about this case,” said Rodriguez. Except of course for Wall’s name.
