Flight to Las Vegas diverted for passenger refusing to wear mask

LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — A flight headed to Las Vegas Tuesday morning had to be diverted after a passenger refused to follow the airline's mask requirement.

A spokesperson for United confirmed via email that Flight 859 from Newark, New Jersey stopped in Omaha, Nebraska so the "disruptive passenger" could be removed.

Law enforcement officers met the plane in Omaha, and the flight has since taken off again for Las Vegas, according to United.

Flight records indicate the plane left Newark at 8:30 a.m. and landed in Omaha just before 10:30 a.m., local times.
