It’s not just celebrities who get caught trying to bring firearms onto planes — it also happens to airline employees! Yesterday, a Delta flight attendant was arrested after a scan of her bag turned up a loaded handgun.
The 39-year-old woman was on her way to work a flight from Indianapolis International Airport to her hometown of Atlanta when an X-ray machine operator noticed the distinct outline of a 9mm Glock with a full magazine in the flight attendant’s bag.
She was immediately detained and preliminarily charged with entering a controlled area of an airport with a weapon and possession of a handgun without a permit.
The initial police report gave no reason why the flight attendant would be carrying a gun or be so stupid as to think she could sneak it through security.
The Delta flight to Atlanta left on time, minus one gun-toting flight attendant.
