Oklahoma man arrested in O'Hare gun incident

Chicago, IL — A 44-year-old Fort Gibson, Oklahoma man was arrested and charged Tuesday for carrying a loaded handgun in his carry-on while going through security at O'Hare International Airport, officials said.

Christopher Baldridge was arrested early Tuesday morning when airport security spotted a loaded gun inside his backpack, police said.

He was charged with boarding an aircraft with a weapon, a felony.

A published report said Baldridge told authorities it was his first visit to Chicago and that he foolishly brought along the gun for protection.

Baldridge appeared in bond court Tuesday, said Police News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines.  A judge set his bond at $25,000.  His next court hearing is set for June 6, 2011.  He remains in jail.

  • image_preview.jpeg Group honors troop remains dumped in landfill

    Maybe it's because they live just a few miles from a stone memorial to Confederate Gen. Stonewall Jackson's severed left arm. But when a group of residents from Virginia's Northern Neck heard that the cremated body parts of American troops had been dumped unceremoniously in a local landfill, they knew what to do: Mark the place - rotting garbage and all - as sacred ground.

    Libyan Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril says Moammar Gadhafi has been killed.

    "We have been waiting for this moment for a long time. Moammar Gadhafi has been killed," Jibril told a news conference in the capital Tripoli.

    During nearly 42 years in power in Libya, Moammar Gadhafi was one of the world's most eccentric dictators, so mercurial that he was both condemned and courted by the West, while he brutally warped his country with his idiosyncratic vision of autocratic rule until he was finally toppled by his own people.
