23-year-old Millage Jonathan Peaks, son of former Los Angeles Fire Chief Millage Peaks, was arrested early Sunday morning at Los Angeles International Airport, on charges he allegedly bribed a Transportation Security Administration agent so he could take several pounds of marijuana with him on a flight to Boston.

That agent, Dianna Perez of Inglewood, was also arrested.

The FBI announced the arrests today. Both suspects were due in federal court today.
