West Virginia Woman NOT Arrested at Airport Attempting to Board Plane with Gun, Extra Magazine and Brass Knuckles

Local news report with video

A woman missed her flight from Huntington Tri-State Airport after she was detained for having a gun and brass knuckles in her carry-on baggage.
According to a spokesperson with TSA, a woman was stopped by officers after a .32 caliber handgun, loaded with six rounds, as well as another loaded magazine, and brass knuckles were spotted on the x-ray machine. The weapons were in her carry-on bag.
The gun, ammo and brass knuckles were confiscated by Tri-State Airport Police.
The woman missed her original flight to Charlotte, but rebooked, minus the weapons, according to TSA officials.
TSA says, "Passengers are responsible for the contents of bags they bring to the security checkpoint, and TSA's advice to passengers is to look through bags thoroughly before coming to the airport to make sure there are no illegal or prohibited items."
WSAZ.com has a call into the Tri-State Airport Police Department to see if any charges will be filed in the case.
