NEW YORK (CNN) -- Authorities arrested a Northwest Airlines pilot Tuesday after authorities found a gun in his bag at LaGuardia Airport, the Queens, New York, district attorney's office said.
The pilot was identified as Robert Donaldson, 43. Law enforcement sources said he was carrying a 9mm handgun. It was discovered during a routine security screening at about 5:45 a.m. EST.
Donaldson was scheduled to fly Flight 1191, a Boeing 757, to Detroit, Michigan, at 6 a.m. The flight was canceled.
The Transportation Security Administration made the discovery and notified the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police, authority spokesman Tony Ciavolella said.
Donaldson was being held pending arraignment later Tuesday on a charge of criminal possession of a loaded gun, the district attorney's office said.
