Several outlets say that the comedian Mike Epps was held at the Indianapolis airport because security personnel allegedly discovered a loaded gun in his backpack.

WXIN-TV, WTHR-TV, and USA Today citing airport sources said that airport police examined 52-year-old Epps after a probable handgun was thought to be in his carry-on luggage during a security screening on Sunday.

According to WTHR, police discovered a revolver with four rounds in the chamber but no firing pin.

Epps reportedly claimed to police he didn’t realize the gun was in his bag. He had just hosted a comedy concert the night before, with D.L. Hughley and Cedric the Entertainer, in Indianapolis’ Gainbridge Fieldhouse, and he had to get on the road.
