MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A man was arrested at Memphis International Airport Saturday after a gun was found in his carry-on bag.
Airport police responded to the security checkpoint where Benjamin Byrd, 27, said he forgot to remove his handgun from his carry-on. Police and the FBI ran checks on Byrd and found no warrants or previous weapons violations.
Byrd was arrested for unlawful possession of a weapon because he didn’t have a current handgun permit. He was booked into jail on $1,000 bond.
