Coverage from the AvHerald in the link below.
Dare I say kudos to the operating crew and especially the Skippers insistence with MX after the event, thus ensuring the A/C was not returned to service. Does anybody know more of this incident?

Indeed. The plane operated another service after this "incident" on 28th and appears to have been operating normally ever since - currently en-route to PIT.
Slow news day, I think.

Curious on this one, I hope we learn more of it!

These events seemingly continue at a typical rate week after week.
Managers working in general industry or aviation know full well that such incidents can potentially become root cause events leading to larger safety issues if not proactively addressed and resolved/prevented properly and in a timely manner.

On Feb 8th 2018 the NTSB told The Aviation Herald: "Code of Federal Regulations 830.5 requires that NTSB be notified when a required crewmember (flight or cabin) cannot complete their official duties. NTSB investigators contacted Spirit Airlines and were briefed on the circumstances that occurred on the Jan. 28 flight. All crewmembers completed their official duties throughout the flight. Several flight attendants were transported to the hospital but none were admitted. The pilots did not go to the hospital. No further investigation is planned."
