A Frederick man on his way to Jackson Hole, Wyo., was given a citation Wednesday afternoon for having a stun gun in his carry-on luggage at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport.

The unidentified passenger was stopped by a Transportation Security Administration officer who detected the combination stun gun/flashlight in his luggage. Maryland Transportation Authority Police confiscated the weapon and cited its owner on a state weapons charge. There was no impact to airport operations and the man was allowed to catch his flight.

Over the last three weeks, four stun guns have been confiscated at BWI, according to TSA records.
