Former LB Dan Connor Arrested at Philly Airport
Former Penn State linebacker and all-time school tackles leader Dan Connor is in a bit of trouble tonight, according to a report from NBC10.
Connor, now a linebacker for the New York Giants, attempted to board the plane while carrying a switchblade in his luggage, according to the report. A TSA agent saw the knife on the x-ray machine and notified authorities.
Connor was charged with Possession of an Offensive Weapon. He played at Penn State from 2004 through 2007 and is regarded as one of the best linebackers in Penn State history. He graduated 334 tackles, the most in Penn State history.
If anything, there’s a lesson here for air travelers. It’s likely that Connor meant no harm but forgot to remove the knife from his luggage. Remember to take anything suspicious out of your bags before you fly because the TSA isn’t a very forgiving bunch!
