New York Giants officials say linebacker Dan Connor is cooperating with authorities after he was arrested when a switchblade was discovered in his luggage at Philadelphia International Airport.

According to the Associated Press, TSA employees located the knife when his bag was entered in an X-ray machine. Connor was arrested by police and then released on his own recognizance.

Pat Hanlon, a Giants spokesman, said Connor is “cooperating with the authorities in Philadelphia.”

Unfortunately, this is an entirely preventable offense, the kind that people should not make.
