Bond was set at $25,000 Thursday for state. Sen. Donne Trotter, who is charged with attempting to bring a firearm onto an airplane, the Sun-Times is reporting.
Trotter, who previously was seen as top-tier candidate the 2nd Congressional District seat, was arrested Wednesday at O’Hare Airport.
Trotter told police he had been working a job with a security firm the night before and forgot he had the weapon and ammunition in his bag.
