Legendary NBA center Bill Russell was arrested Wednesday at the Seattle-Tacoma (Sea-Tac) Airport when a loaded handgun was allegedly found in his luggage, according to multiple reports.
KING-5 News and KIRO-TV in Seattle both report that Russell, 79, was arrested after a loaded .38-caliber handgun was found during a Transportation Security Administration screening of his carry-on bag.
Russell reportedly had a permit for the weapon, which was confiscated. KIRO-TV reported that Russell, who has since been released, was cited by the Port of Seattle for carrying a weapon in a prohibited area and that the TSA will assess a monetary penalty.

It’s okay, he’ll “rebound”.
The report I saw this morning merely said he was cited, not arrested. He made a mistake... Forgot to move it into his checked bag. I think they can cut the guy a little slack.
If it was one of us we would be locked in a cell with Bubba.
You don’t want to be next to him on the range.
I’ve heard he dribbles before he shoots.
In a sane world perhaps, but we have not been living a sane world for some time now, I am afraid...
Well be fair, the South has nothing on Boston when it comes to racism.
Is Bill Russell another one who fans the flames for face time, like Sharpton or Bill Cosby?
Plus the guy is almost 80. Old folks need an edge against the punks these days.
Make the BATFE and TSA stand down WRT Seasoned Citizens. Enough already.
He actually complained alot about that in his book, which was published in the 60s. So not much has changed
No kidding. Shudder!
Insanity began with the proverbial original sin of Adam and Eve. Hasn't stopped yet. Do you think it ever will?
I hear WillieJeff is a fun guy.
He acted stupidly
He was called for “travelling” —
Pistol Pete Maravich.
Time for a beer summit.
” . . . all his talk of the racism he claims to have experienced while in Boston.”
That wasn’t racism, that’s just the way Bostonians treat everybody even family.
You would think he had flown enough times in his life not to forget the drill.
Don’t You Know Who I Am!!
If he is a Democrat he should be imprisoned.
If he Voted for Obama he should be imprisoned.
Gun Control for Thee but not for Me. Hypocrite...
Back in the 70's,when the Oakland A's were dominating baseball I saw a part of an interview with about a half dozen A's players,two or three were white and two or three were black.They were complaining about what a bum Charlie Finley was and at one point one of the black players said something like "Charlie Finley's the only person who's ever treated me like a n*gger" and at least one of the other black players nodded his head in agreement.At that point one of the white players cut in and said something like "no,I don't think it's racism...Charlie Finley treats his white players like n*ggers too".
An interesting moment,IMO.
Excellent observation by that white player,whoever he was.
The conceits about what constitutes racism are not about to go away
Anytime soon.this leads me to the inescapable conclusion that the
Most ironic thing anyone could say would be. ‘hey, you wanted equality..............
The purpose of the intrusive TSA BS was always about promoting obedience training for the populace, never about public safety.
