Rockets Center Dwight Howard detained for having a handgun in his carry-on bag


Houston Police Department spokesperson Kese Smith said Wednesday that Howard was stopped at Terminal E at 7 a.m. when Transportation Security Administration officials discovered a pistol in the bottom of a carry-on bag.

Howard told officials the gun was his, and after being detained by law enforcement officials he was allowed to give the handgun to an associate.

The Houston District Attorney's office was contacted after Howard was detained and declined to press any criminal charges against him.

Howard was allowed to board a later flight.

The Rockets released a statement saying the team was aware of the incident and still gathering information. Howard couldn't be reached.
