Police: Tenn. man had loaded rifle in bag at JFK

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Police say a Tennessee man has checked luggage containing a loaded, defaced rifle at New York's Kennedy International Airport.
    
Keenan Draughon was arrested Saturday morning trying to board a flight to Charlotte, N.C., after Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police found the weapons. Police spokesman Joseph Pentangelo says Draughon also had high-capacity magazines, which are illegal in New York.
    
U.S. Transportation Security Administration rules allow only unloaded weapons in checked luggage. No weapons are allowed in carry-on luggage.
    
Pentangelo says the serial numbers on two rifles were defaced. He says Draughon was also carrying two handguns in his checked luggage.
    
The 23-year-old Clarksville man was being held pending an arraignment. It wasn't clear yet whether he has a lawyer.
