Fargo woman gets jail time for airport incident
FARGO — A Fargo woman has been sentenced to five days in jail after pleading guilty to resisting arrest after her alleged assault on two flight attendants Wednesday night on a plane bound for Hector International Airport.
Fargo city prosecutor Jason Loos said Allison Kathryn Johnson, 35, pleaded guilty to a single Class B misdemeanor count of resisting arrest and was sentenced to five days in jail, plus court-ordered chemical dependency evaluation.
Loos said the sentence was fairly standard in cases such as Johnson’s, who has prior alcohol-related convictions on her record, and whose confrontation with police Wednesday night was alcohol-related.
“I think it was a kind of a continual thing,” said Loos, of Johnson’s “flailing” at police officers. “From when they grabbed her off the airplane, all the way to jail.”
The incident aboard the plane is being investigated by the FBI.
