Boxer Robert Guerrero was arrested Thursday after reportedly trying to bring a gun on a plane at Kennedy Airport in New York.
The current WBC welterweight champion attempted to board a plane at JFK Airport with an unloaded .40-caliber handgun -- along with three unloaded magazine clips -- but was apprehended by police after he presented the gun in a locked box to a ticket agent while he was checking in for his flight.
He legally registered the gun in his home state of California, but faces a felony charge because he does not have the firearm licensed in the state of New York.
Guerrero was arraigned Thursday on charges, including criminal possession of a firearm. He was released on his own recognizance and ordered to appear in court on May 14.
The 30-year-old is set to face Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 4 in Las Vegas. The charges will likely not impact the fight.
