Man faces charge of loaded gun in airport

BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. - For the second time, a man is out on bond after authorities say a gun was found in his carry-on luggage at the Tri-Cities Regional Airport.

The Transportation Security Administration tells us Christopher Osborne is charged with possession of a prohibited weapon. Officers say the gun was loaded with ten rounds of ammunition when found Tuesday morning.

We're told Osborne was trying to fly to Atlanta. The TSA will be pursuing civil charges.

Last year, Osborne was arrested with the weapon on another flight from Tri-Cities to Atlanta.

He was arraigned Tuesday morning and will be back in court on January 28.
