KDKA (1020) has suspended a reporter after he was arrested for allegedly bringing a gun into the Allegheny County Courthouse, the Post-Gazette reports.
Rob Milford, 53, of Castle Shannon was arraigned on charges of carrying a firearm without a license and possessing a firearm in a court facility.
Allegheny County Sheriff Bill Mullen told the McKeesport Daily News that the agency is trying to trace the registered owner of the gun.
Although gun registration is not required in Pennsylvania, owners do need a permit to carry a concealed weapon, and no one is allowed to bring a weapon into a courthouse.
Milford told deputies “he forgot the gun was in the briefcase,” Mullen told the McKeesport Daily News.
Milford was released on his own recognizance; the P-G says a preliminary hearing has been slated for July 26. (The Daily News says the hearing is slated for 12:30 p.m. June 26.)
