CHICAGO – An American Airlines flight attendant has been arrested at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport after security screeners discovered a gun in her carry-on luggage.
Airline spokeswoman Mary Frances Fagan confirmed the woman is a flight attendant for American, but would not comment further.
