Man Busted for Bringing Gun to Casino: Police
The Arizona man was spotted with a revolver under his jacket while gambling at one of the tables at Harrah's, Cmdr. Al Roechner said.
Edgar A. Hoopiiaina, of Tuscon, was gambling at one of the tables when an employee observed he had a gun under his jacket, according to Joliet police Cmdr. Al Roechner.
Illinois may soon be getting a concealed carry law thanks to an appellate court ruling last week, but it's not in place yet and you'll still need a permit to do so. And even in Arizona, where there is a concealed carry law, guns are not allowed in casinos, Roechner said.
Hoopiiaina was charged with felony aggravated unlawful use of a weapon. He was released from the Will County jail Monday on $10,000 bond.
