Patriots players and gun, name a more iconic duo.

Jones was planning on flying from Boston to Arizona when he was apprehended at a Transportation Security Administration security checkpoint, Massachusetts State Police said, according to WCVB. He now faces multiple charges, including unlawful possession of a firearm, carrying a loaded firearm, possession of a large-capacity feeding device and possession of ammunition without a firearm identification card.

A TSA spokesperson told WCVB that agents found two loaded guns and ammunition in a passenger’s carry-on luggage with a ticket to Los Angeles International Airport. The incident occurred at around 5:20 p.m.

Police said they were called to the TSA security checkpoint in Terminal B after the TSA discovered the firearms and ammunition

Jones, who is entering his second year in the NFL, was booked at the State Police Logan Airport Barracks on $50,000 bail, police said. He is scheduled to be arraigned in East Boston District Court next week.

The Patriots said in a statement that the franchise has been made aware of the incident. 

“We are in the process of gathering more information and will not be commenting further at this time,” the statement said.

According to the TSA, firearms can only be taken on a commercial aircraft if they are unloaded, packed in a locked, hard-sided case and placed in checked baggage. Ammunition, firearm frames, receivers, clips and magazines also must be checked and cannot be transported in carry-on baggage.

Ironically enough, Jones himself called out NBA Star Ja Morant following the incidents involving him braising weapons around on social media just last month.
