Bill Russell took different route than Wesley Snipes

Celtics [1] legend Bill Russell [2] issued an apology [3] through The Boston Globe following his arrest for carrying a loaded .38 caliber Smith & Wesson handgun in his carry-on luggage when attempting to board a flight from his adopted home of Seattle to Boston, where he is scheduled to be honored with a statue at City Hall Plaza on Nov. 1.

‘€œBefore boarding my flight from Seattle to Boston, I had accidentally left a legal firearm in my bag. I apologize and truly regret the mistake,’€ he said. ‘€œI was issued a citation by the TSA, whose agents couldn’t have been more thorough and professional when dealing with this. I really appreciate their efforts to keep air travel safe.’€

Probably a lot smarter than the Wesley Snipes route: “My instincts are to wax your ass all over this floor!”
