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.
According to USA Today, Epps was not taken into custody, but the gun was taken.
Whether or whether charges are brought against Epps will be decided by the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office.
