Richmond man brings loaded gun to airport

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A Richmond man is in trouble after he brings a loaded gun to the Norfolk airport.

An airport spokesperson says 51-year-old Joseph Bass was cited for unlawfully carrying a gun into an airport terminal.

That's a misdemeanor.

A TSA employee saw the handgun in a x-ray of Bass' carry on bag.

Agents took the gun from Bass — reports say he was able to get on a United Airlines flight to Chicago from Norfolk after getting that summons.
