Vegas-bound plane began its final approach.
The plane from Kansas City landed safety Thursday evening and
parked away from the terminal as emergency personnel responded.
Lt. Loren Napier says the 116 passengers and crew left the plane
unharmed and were bused to the terminal.
Authorities say passengers complained of an odor like pepper
spray at the back of the plane
Airport spokesman Chris Jones says the plane's crew reported the
smell about 20 minutes before it landed, just before 6 p.m.
A Southwest West spokeswoman says the airline is investigating.
