Texas Representative William Darby was arrested last week when authorities say he had a gun in his carry-on bag.
According to the arrest affidavit, a TSA officer detected what appeared to be a gun inside of a bag belonging to Darby while working the X-ray machine. Investigators say another TSA officer found the gun inside the bag.
Police were called to the screening area where an officer interviewed Darby. He allegedly told the officer that he was a concealed license holder and forgot the handgun was in his bag.
Darby was placed under arrest and charged with having a weapon in a prohibited place.
Darby represents District 72 which includes the city of San Angleo.
