When most people are worrying about accidentally taking 3.5 ounces of liquid through airport security, it's somewhat mind-boggling that anyone out there would casually try to carry on a loaded gun. But that's exactly what Darius Miles, former L.A. Clipper, is accused of doing yesterday, according to TMZ. The ex-basketball star was arrested at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport after his bags went through the X-ray machine. Miles, 29, was taken in on suspicion of unlawful use of a weapon.
