ALEXANDRIA, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Authorities say a 25-year-old Marksville man has been arrested after a loaded handgun was found in his backpack at Alexandria International Airport.

Rashad Mazen Hamideh was arrested Wednesday after a Rapides Parish deputy was notified about a security breach by Transportation Security Administration agents. The TSA agents told the deputy that a backpack contained a loaded handgun.

Hamideh was booked with illegal carrying of a weapon.

He was released on a $5,000 bond.

It was unclear whether Hamideh has an attorney.
