Actor Arrested For Bringing Gun To LAX

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Actor Dennis Farina has been arrested at Los
Angeles International Airport after a loaded gun was found in his
carryon luggage.

When the weapon was discovered at a security checkpoint around 8
a.m. Sunday, police say the 64-year-old actor told them that he'd
forgotten the .22-caliber handgun was in his luggage.

Police Sgt. Dennis Beacham of the LAPD's Pacific Division says Farina was booked for investigation of carrying a concealed weapon. Bail was set at $25,000.

Farina's latest film, the Ashton Kutcher-Cameron Diaz comedy "What Happens in Vegas," opened Friday.

Farina has starred in TV's "Law & Order" series and in such movies "Snatch" and "Get Shorty."
