Man Appeals Arrest For Unplanned Gun Possession

The Supreme Court could decide today whether to hear an appeal from a Utah man who wants to sue airport police over a gun.

They arrested the man in New Jersey for illegal gun possession, but the man hadn't even planned to be in the state.

He had kept the unloaded gun in his luggage, which had been checked through to Pennsylvania.  But because of a late connecting flight, the man was forced to stay in a hotel in New Jersey. When he re-checked his luggage, he told security about his unloaded, checked gun.  That's when police arrested him.
