Poland physician accused of carrying weapon at airport

Staff/wire report


A Poland man accused of carrying a concealed weapon in an airport will appear in court Friday.

Dr. Richard Buxman, 60, was arraigned Monday and released on $1,000 bail.

Police said Buxman claimed ownership of a loaded handgun and knife found early Monday in a carry-on laptop case at a Cleveland Hopkins International Airport security checkpoint.

A Cleveland police officer said he located a loaded 9mm handgun, two loaded clips, a 3.5-inch folding knife and a loose bullet in the case after a transportation officer saw the gun and knife on an X-ray.

Reports said Dr. Buxman’s wife told police “in a distressed state that she had packed the computer case and that they both forgot that the weapons were inside.”

Police said the bag also contained an iPod and miscellaneous books and magazines.

When Buxman acknowledged ownership of the bag and its contents, he was arrested, police said. Dr. Buxman is an emergency-room doctor for a Youngstown hospital.

The Vindicator left a message seeking comment Wednesday afternoon at Dr. Buxman’s home.

"A Cleveland police officer" should be imprisoned for egregious violation of the doctor's civil rights in the form of the 2nd amendment.

Does anyone think the doctor had wrong intentions? We don't know for certain but given what was written in the article it was probably an accident.
