BOSTON – New England Patriots cornerback Jack Jones was arrested Friday night after attempting to bring two firearms on a plane at Boston Logan International Airport, authorities said.
The firearms were found in Jones’ carry-on luggage as he went through a security checkpoint at the airport just after 5 p.m., a Transporation Security Administration New England spokesperson said on Twitter.
Massachusetts State Police troopers were called to the airport at the Terminal B checkpoint to arrest Jones, WFXT reported.
Jones is facing multiple charges including possession of a concealed weapon in a secure area of an airport, possession of ammunition without a firearm identification card, unlawful possession of a firearm, carrying a loaded firearm, and possession of a large-capacity feeding device, police said, according to the news outlet.
Jones was booked at the State Police-Logan Airport Barracks, WFXT reported. He posted bail at $50,000. He is expected to be arraigned next week in East Boston District Court.
“We have been notified that Jack Jones was arrested at Logan Airport earlier today. We are in the process of gathering more information and will not be commenting further at this time,” according to a statement from a Patriots spokesperson obtained by WFXT.
Jones was drafted by the New England Patriots in the fourth round of the NFL draft in 2022. He was 121st overall, according to the news outlet.
