Flight Attendant Cited Over Gun at Philly Airport

Monday, September 24th, 2012

A flight attendant forgot to take a gun out of her purse before leaving for work at Philadelphia International Airport, where TSA agents noticed the gun and alerted police.

A police officer tried to make the weapon safe by removing the bullets — but ended up shooting a round in the process. No one was hurt:

Investigators say the flight attendant has a valid gun permit. She has been cited for passing the gun through a security checkpoint.

Evers says the discharge is being investigated by Internal Affairs and the officer who accidentally discharged the gun will go back to training on handling weapons.

When you hear someone say that police officers are trained, remember your last corporate training — and the people who passed the course.
