Former Kansas City Chiefs nose tackle Bill Maas will not face state charges after he was detained at Kansas City International Airport on September 5th when security screeners discovered a loaded 9mm handgun in his carry-on bag as he prepared to board a flight.
Maas said he grabbed the wrong bag when he was departing for the airport, officials said. The handgun was confiscated, and Maas was released pending additional investigation.
Maas could still face a civil penalty from the Transportation Security Administration. The penalty range for carrying a loaded firearm is between $3,000 and $7,500, Harmon said.
