Darius Miles Arrested With Loaded Firearm at Airport

Here’s some unfortunate news out of St. Louis, as former NBA player Darius Miles was caught at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport allegedly attempting to bring a loaded gun through security. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has it: “Former NBA player and East St. Louis native Darius Miles was arrested Wednesday afternoon at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport for allegedly trying to bring a loaded firearm through security, authorities said. Miles, 29, was arrested about 3:30 p.m. after Transportation Security Administration personnel discovered the weapon during an X-ray screening at the airport, according to information from a TSA spokeswoman and a jail official. Miles was arrested by St. Louis Airport police, then booked into the St. Louis County jail in Clayton later Wednesday evening. It was unclear whether the loaded gun was found inside luggage or whether Miles had been carrying the weapon. The weapon was discovered at the Concourse A checkpoint. Authorities did not say what type of gun was seized. Miles was booked about 8:30 p.m. on suspicion of unlawful use of a weapon, authorities said. He was to be booked and released pending application of a warrant on a formal criminal charge. He was not required to post bond. The St. Louis County prosecutor’s office will review the case and decide whether charges will be filed. Miles now lives in Swansea, according to information he provided to police and jail officials.”

    ….he carried a loaded gun into an airport…..not only is he going to do time, he’s going to his fair share of it. Literally as stupendously stupid a crime that can possibly be committed. The guy should’ve made his home somewhere in Europe a long time ago

    He’s totally gonna get bum-poked by Homeland Security. A buddy of mine got a border guard’s finger up his butt because he had an old pack of zigzags in his glove compartment. Imagine what they do to guys that try to take loaded guns on planes.

    Also, it’s rather ironic that the banner ad at the top of this page is for professional firearms training.
