- Houston Rockets star Dwight Howard was stopped at Bush Intercontinental Airport after the discovery of a loaded gun in his carry-on bag. 

The incident happened Friday, August 28 around 7 a.m. as Howard was going through a security checkpoint. After the gun was discovered in the bottom of his carry-on bag, Howard stated that he forgot it was there.

A friend of Howard's removed the gun from the bag, and left the airport with it.

Howard was allowed to continue on with his flight.
