WBC welterweight champion Robert Guerrero, who was in New York this week promoting his May 4 fight against unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr., was arrested Thursday at John F. Kennedy International Airport when he tried to take a gun onto a plane.
Police said the 30-year-old boxer from Gilroy, Calif., had a box with an unloaded .40-caliber handgun and three unloaded magazines that he tried to check with a ticket agent.
Although the gun had been registered by Guerrero in California, it's illegal in New York to carry a weapon that is not licensed there.
Queens Dist. Atty. Richard Brown, who said Guerrero was arraigned Thursday, didn't pull any punches when chastising the boxer for his actions.
