41-year-old Shantonia Gwin reportedly made sexually inappropriate comments and threats toward Southwest Airlines staff on September 1st after 10 p.m. Police arrived, and Shantonia was not present but was found a short distance away. They identified Shantonia by his Kentucky Driver’s license, and Shantonia told them that he lost his bag at Southwest and wished to retrieve it. Police escorted Shantonia to Southwest baggage, where they met Timothy Kiernon, who said he wanted to press charges against Shantonia for assault. Timothy told police that Shantonia came to baggage service visibly intoxicated and cussed at the employees. Also, he said, “He can talk to the bitches any way he wants because they are black.” He left and returned several times to the baggage service, threatening to physically harm Timothy. Police arrested Shantonia for assault against Timothy via his reports and willingness to prosecute.
