Forced gate check bag question

Hi,
Not sure where this type of question goes but figured I’d post it here.
I’m flying as a travel companion for the first time today from LGA mainline on a 737-900. There were about 30 seats open, so I knew overhead space wouldn’t be an issue. However, as I was boarding, the agent told me I had to gate check my carry on spinner (well within the dimensions). I really didn’t want to do this since I’d be connecting through through a hub with a long layover. But I figured I’d play nice since I was standby.

When I got to my seat, I kindly asked the FA if I could try and grab my bag if it was still on the jetway and she said enthusiastically "yeah! hurry up and get it before they throw it down the chute." So I did … and I was walking back to the cabin, the FA told me to rip the tag off that they had put on. During the push, she came up to me and said "hey just so you know, it’s breaking a FAR to rip the tag off of a bag once it’s been assigned for check." I was confused since she was the one who told me to do it … so I asked "well, am I in trouble?" And she said "oh of course not. But just so you know for next time."

Anyway, I’ve been searching the internet for a reg that prohibits this type of thing. Any idea what in the world she’s talking about? Does it have to do with the manifest?

Thanks!
