Bengals offensive lineman Andre Smith arrested after allegedly bringing gun to airport
ATLANTA - Bengals offensive lineman Andre Smith was arrested Thursday after he allegedly brought a gun to an airport in Atlanta.
Atlanta police say they found a loaded .380 pistol in Smith's carry-on bag when he tried to board a plane at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport around 4:50 p.m. Thursday. Police responded to the scene and arrested Smith.
“We continue to remind passengers of the importance of looking through carry-on bags to ensure there are no prohibited items inside,” said Jon Allen, TSA spokesman.
TSA officials say this is the third firearm discovered at Hartsfield-Jackson airport this year. In 2012, 1,548 firearms were discovered at airports nationwide, which is up 1,320 from 2011. Officials say the majority of the firearms were loaded.
