Rogers arrested for loaded gun
CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns nose tackle Shaun Rogers was arrested Thursday at Hopkins International Airport for having a loaded gun in his carry-on luggage.
Rogers, who had been at the team’s suburban training facility in recent days taking part in a voluntary off-season program, was stopped at a security checkpoint on Concourse C when officials spotted a loaded .45-caliber hand gun in his bag, police said in a statement.
He was arrested at 12:15 p.m. “without incident,” transferred to a downtown processing center and booked for carrying a concealed weapon, a third-degree felony.
Sgt. Sammy Morris of the Cleveland Police Department said Rogers was still being held in the city’s jail Thursday night.
No charges have been filed at this time, police said, although the 31-year-old Rogers could face federal fines for carrying the firearm.
It’s not yet known what Rogers, who lives in Houston during the offseason, told officials about the gun or if he has a permit for it.
