The prosecution thought things through and apparently concluded that bringing a loaded firearm to an airport is, in fact, against the law.

KMOX.com reports that former NBA player Darius Miles will face a felony charge for allegedly bringing a loaded firearm to a St. Louis airport back in August.

Former  NBA player and East St. Louis High School product Darius Miles is facing a weapons charge stemming from a recent incident at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.

The St. Louis County Prosecutor has charged Miles with one felony count of unlawful use of a weapon. Miles was arrested at Lambert in early August after a Transportation Security Administration screener allegedly found a loaded handgun in his carry-on bag.

According to reports, Miles, 29, was taken into custody following the X-ray screening process revealed the weapon. Handguns may only be transported in checked baggage.

Miles, a lottery pick in the 2000 NBA Draft, played seven seasons in the NBA for the Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland Cavaliers, Portland Trail Blazers and Memphis Grizzlies. Once a high-fllying athlete at forward, chronic knee problems prematurely ended his career.

For the incident, Miles ranked No. 4 on this summer's NBA Lockout Indiscretion Power Rankings.

Complete idiot...and these felons think they deserve more money. Try getting a real job. See how your new boss puts up with all your bullsh*t....then demand a raise. It's called the real world. If not for basketball, a high percentage of these morons would be in prison.

Honestly, and all kidding aside. Anybody on this planet and especially after 9/11 that has the nerve to try and get on a plane with a loaded gun in his carry on bag deserves to be shot with his own gun.  Idiot.
