Murphy arrested with loaded Glock at Tampa International Airport.
Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Louis Murphy was arrested at Tampa International Airport yesterday morning for carrying a loaded Glock 23 pistol inside of a backpack.
According to ESPN, Murphy's glock was loaded with 11 rounds of ammunition when security discovered it at the Airside C security checkpoint. He did not have a concealed weapons permit and was arrested around 9:10am, although he was released later that afternoon on $2,000 cash bond.
In the state of Florida, carrying a concealed firearm is a third degree felony, punishable by a maximum prison sentence of five years as well as fines up to $5,000.
Murphy spent the last three seasons with the Bucs but is currently a free agent.
