Legend Bill Russell Arrested On Gun Charges

11 time NBA league champion and legend Bill Russell was arrested Friday night at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport after a .38 caliber Smith & Weston gun was found in his carry-on luggage.

The Transportation Security Administration says airport police arrested Russell at a security screening after agents noticed the gun in his carry-on bag.

Airline passengers are permitted to travel with firearms only in checked baggage. They must be stored properly and unloaded.

Russell was cited by Port of Seattle police on a state charge of carrying a concealed weapon, but was released not long after because he has a permit for the gun.
