After spending the night in jail after Cleveland airport police discovered a loaded 45-caliber handgun in his luggage at the Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, defensive tackle Shaun Rogers is formerly being charged with "carrying a concealed weapon".
A Cleveland city prosecutor filed the fourth-degree felony charge Friday. It alleges that Rogers carried a .45-caliber Kimber semiautomatic with eight rounds in his carry-on luggage at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
Bond was set at $1,000. Defense attorney Patrick D'Angelo says he was posting the bond and expects Rogers to be released promptly.
As of this posting, Rogers was released from jail, but is scheduled to attend an arraignment Saturday at 8:30 A.M. Cleveland Browns President Mike Holmgren issued a statement that the team is reserving comment and allowing the legal process to take its course.
