SC man ticketed $270 for gun in carry-on bag

Aug 19, 2011 8:35:00 AM - thestate.com
Authorities say a 36-year-old Greenville County man faces a $270 fine for having a gun and ammunition in his carry-on bag.

A police report says Christopher Antony McCall of Simpsonville told authorities at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport that he forgot he had a pistol in his bag.

Transportation Security Administration spokesman John Allen says the gun and ammunition were discovered about 5:45 a.m. Tuesday as McCall passed through a security checkpoint, and airport police were notified. Police issued him a $270 ticket for violating airport rules.

Allen says unloaded firearms can be transported in checked bags if they're declared to the airline and in a proper carrying case.

Aiport police spokeswoman Rosylin Weston says a judge will determine what to do with the weapon and ammunition.
