Hey, who knew it was illegal to bring a handgun on a commercial flight? From Fox Kansas City :

Former Chief and FOX Football analyst Bill Maas was stopped while trying to board a Northwest Airlines flight Wednesday morning at KCI carrying a loaded 9mm handgun in his carry-on.

TSA authorities alerted the KCI Police who arrested Maas at 11:17 a.m. He was booked and released and will have a future court date..

Maas is already facing charges in a July 7th incident in Peoria, Illinois when he and a female companion were arrested on felony drug and weapon charges. Maas had a loaded .22 revolver during that incident.

Strangely silent this morning is Fox Sports’ Jason Whitlock, who surely must be preparing a lengthy column decrying the rampant gangsterism of NFL alumni and football broadcasters.

(UPDATE : as it turns out, Whitlock did indeed have something to say on the matter.)
