A Morgan County man is facing charges, after he took a loaded semi-automatic handgun gun to the airport.
Transportation safety officials found the gun Tuesday inside a carry-on bag at the security checkpoint at McGhee Tyson Airport.
The gun's owner, Bobby York, told officers he was flying to Orlando and forgot the gun was in his bag.
York was cited for carrying a weapon with the purpose of going armed.
TSA officials also confiscated a loaded pistol yesterday at the Memphis International Airport.
