Bill Russell arrested for gun in bag at airport


SEATAC, Wash. -- NBA legend Bill Russell was arrested this week at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport after a loaded gun was found in his carry-on luggage.

The Transportation Security Administration says airport police arrested Russell on Wednesday night at a security screening after agents noticed a .38-caliber Smith & Wesson pistol in his carry-on bag.

Note: He won the Medal of FREEDOM, but got busted by TSA for a 2nd Amendment retriction. Maybe Obama will make a phone call to have this charge vanish. It is said that the Medal of Freedom is an especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavors". This is classic irony that one given such a medal was arrested for securing his own security in a modern world of limitations on the individual rights.
