A Colorado state lawmaker was arrested Tuesday afternoon at Denver International Airport on suspicion of bringing a gun into the hub.

Officers were called about 1:45 p.m. after TSA agent Lorena Arias saw what appeared to be a loaded firearm belonging to Saine in the X-ray machine.

The police report describing the incident said Saine "knowingly brought the handgun to the checkpoint".

Federal agents found four rounds in the magazine but none in the chamber, according to the probable cause statement.

Denver police say Rep. Lori Saine was arrested Tuesday and was being held for investigation of introducing a firearm into a transportation facility. "The investigation is ongoing, so additional details are not available for release at this time", Denver Police told the Post. It's not clear if she has a lawyer. She's due in court Wednesday afternoon. She was later released after Saine's attorney and prosecutors reached an agreement under which she will return to attend any future hearings in the case.

Firearms are allowed on planes if they are properly stored in checked luggage and declared.

Saine was the primary sponsor of a bill earlier this year that would have repealed a ban on high-capacity magazines for certain guns, and which would have eliminated a ban on so-called "gravity knives, the TV station reported".

DIA ranked fifth highest for firearms discovered in carry-on bags in the United States past year.
