Colorado lawmaker arrested after loaded gun found in bag by TSA agent

She was arrested on suspicion of introducing a firearm into a transportation facility.

The Colorado state representative who spent the night in jail after police say she brought a loaded gun into Denver International Airport "knowingly" brought the weapon to a security checkpoint, according to a probable cause statement released Wednesday morning by the Denver Police Department. In addition, Saine has received permission to travel out of the state. She's due in court Wednesday afternoon. "At the conclusion of the investigation, the case will be presented to the Denver district attorney's office for consideration of possible charges".

Unlike other people who had been jailed pending their initial court hearings, Saine stood behind glass in a holding room instead of entering the courtroom.

The 43-year-old Saine was taken into custody and questioned, and she requested an attorney before she was taken to jail.

She said nothing during the hearing.
