ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a man was arrested at Orlando International Airport after a loaded gun was found in his suitcase.

A jail official on Wednesday says that 63-year-old Michael Timothy Branan has been released on $250 bail. He was arrested Monday.

Authorities say he told a Transportation Security Administration worker he forgot he had packed the weapon. Authorities say he didn't have permission to bring it into the airport and it was confiscated.

He was arrested on a violation of a City of Orlando ordinance regarding personal conduct at an airport.

His attorney's name wasn't immediately known.
