ARLINGTON, Va. (WUSA9) -- A Woodbridge man was cited for bringing a loaded handgun to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport Wednesday, according to officials.

The man was cited after the checkpoint X-ray machine detected the gun as it passed along the conveyor belt along with the traveler's carry-on items. Officials say it was a compact 9 mm semi-automatic handgun and it was fully loaded including a bullet in the gun's chamber.

Police arrived at the checkpoint and stopped the man from bringing the gun onto a flight to San Francisco.
