Florida woman pleads guilty to threatening to kill Kamala Harris

A 39-year-old Florida woman pleaded guilty to threatening to kill Vice President Kamala Harris. Prosecutors said Niviane Petit Phelps pleaded guilty to six counts and faces up to five years in prison.

Phelps sent her incarcerated husband multiple videos in which she threatened to kill Harris and claimed she received $53,000 as “the hit man,” officials said.

Phelps sent the videos through JPay, which is an app used to send media to prisoners. An inspector forwarded them to the Secret Service.

According to an affidavit, Phelps, who is black, told the Secret Service that she was upset that Harris was not really black and hadn’t placed her hand on a bible during the inauguration.

The Miami-area nurse’s attorney, Scott Saul, said she was going through a tumultuous time in her life and didn’t have any intention to act on the threats.

“Ms. Phelps has led an honorable life until this incident,” Saul said. “Ms. Phelps has pled guilty, but she plans on demonstrating significant mitigating circumstances.”

Sentencing is set for Nov. 19.

Florida woman kicked off flight for smoking

Spirit Airlines ejected a passenger for smoking. Video of the incident went viral on social media.

The Florida woman reportedly lit a cigarette immediately after the flight from Detroit, Michigan to Fort Lauderdale, Florida landed and was taxiing on the runway.

“Flight attendants noticed the odor, and the other guests were quick to point out who was responsible and hand over what remained of the extinguished cigarette,” a Spirit Airlines spokesperson said. “Our crew summoned law enforcement officers to have them waiting at the gate to remove the passenger.”

The woman was escorted off the plane by Broward Sheriff’s Office Airport District deputies. She reportedly complied, and no arrests were made.
