Bill Russell was arrested at the airport earlier this week when a loaded handgun was found in his carry-on luggage!
He was issued a state citation for having the weapon on him in a prohibited area.
CNN has the Wheard:
Russell was issued a citation and released. He had a .38-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun in a forbidden area of the airport, said Lisette Garcia, a Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman.
The gun was found during a screening of carry-on bags at a checkpoint, the TSA said.
“Firearms, ammunition, firearm parts and realistic replicas of firearms are always prohibited in carry-on baggage. However, these items can be transported in checked baggage provided the traveler declares them to the airline during the ticket counter check-in process,” a TSA statement said.
Russell may also be looking at a $75,000 fine. But that’s prolly not a problem
I’m lilD, and that’s the Word Eye Heard. Petey Pablo is still in jail for having a gun in his luggage doe.
