While many Branson Police Officers were working the Saturday Protest on West 76 Country Blvd., away from that area and apparently unrelated to the protest, officers had to handle an incident at A.J. Elite Nails and Spa on Branson Hills Parkway around 2:30.
Video posted on Social Media taken by one of the employees of the salon shows a woman who began to damage part of the salon when an employee who was working with her refused to take off the mask he was wearing due to COVID-19 Guidelines in the store. The woman broke the plexiglass at that workstation before being escorted out by employees. Later video shows when Branson Police Officers arrived, the woman jumped on one of the police vehicles before being taken into custody.
According to an online report, the woman was arrested for Property Damage and taken to the Taney County Jail.
