Maas off the hook as far as Missouri is concerned

PLATTE CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Former NFL player and Fox Sports
broadcaster Bill Maas will not face state charges after a handgun
was found in his bag at the Kansas City airport a week ago.
The county prosecutor says ``Missouri law currently makes it
impossible to prosecute someone who tries to carry a gun on a plane
unless that person was going to commit a crime.''
The 45-year-old Maas could still face a $10,000 fine from the
Transportation Security Administration and municipal charges under
a Kansas City ordinance.
The news comes two days after Maas was charged with drug
possession and weapons charges stemming from a July roadside safety
check in Illinois.
