NFL: Report: Rogers’ loaded gun had bullet in chamber
CLEVELAND — A police report says a gun that Cleveland Browns player Shaun Rogers allegedly tried to carry through airport security was cocked with a bullet in the chamber.
The Plain Dealer reported Monday that the police report states the cocked semiautomatic handgun was on safe mode with seven bullets in the magazine and one in the chamber.
Rogers has pleaded not guilty to a concealed weapons charge after authorities say he tried to carry the handgun through airport security in a carryon bag.
The 31-year-old nose tackle has apologized to his fans and his team, saying he didn't mean to take the gun into Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
Rogers told police he forgot the gun was in his bag when he attempted to fly to Texas on Thursday.
