Flight attendant with gun arrested at Indiana airport

Flight attendant who was carrying a handgun in her purse was arrested at the Indianapolis International Airport.

An airport official says a flight attendant who was carrying a handgun in her purse has been arrested at Indianapolis International Airport.

Airport spokesman Corey Wilson says the gun was discovered as the woman passed through a security checkpoint about 6 a.m. Friday.

The Delta flight to Atlanta on which she was due to be a crew member took off without her.

Wilson says the woman is being held on preliminary misdemeanor charges of carrying a handgun without a permit and entering a controlled area with a weapon.

Marion County Jail spokesman Julio Fernandez identified the woman as 39-year-old Amber Robillard and said she was being held pending a court appearance.

It wasn't clear whether she had an attorney.
